FUEL prices are showing no signs of reducing, as residents in Basingstoke have noticed yet another sharp increase in recent days.

Diesel prices have soared to a new record high despite the cut in fuel duty, figures show.

The average cost of a litre of the fuel at UK forecourts on Monday (May 9) was 178.4p, according to Government data.

The previous record of 177.5p was set two days before Chancellor Rishi Sunak implemented a 5p per litre cut in fuel duty on March 23.

Meanwhile, petrol prices have nearly returned to the level seen before the duty cut.

The average cost of the fuel was 163.7p per litre on Monday, compared with 165.4p on March 21.
