A number of other petrol stations across the Portsmouth area including in the city itself are charging 199.9p per litre for diesel, but have yet to pass the £2 mark.

It comes as AA president Edmund King said the Government must step in to lower prices, stating that drivers face an ‘urgent situation’.

Prices have continued to rise despite the wholesale cost of petrol being around 5p per litre cheaper than early June peaks.

The wholesale cost of diesel has stabilised in recent days.

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: ‘We strongly hope pump prices have peaked for the time being and will now start to decrease in line with wholesale prices which reduced last week.

‘That, however, is in the hands of retailers.’
