PETROL prices continue to surge in Dorset as sanctions are imposed on Russia.

The RAC Foundation has warned petrol prices in the UK could rise to £1.60 a litre this week and £1.65 soon after, as the impact of new sanctions on Russian oil and gas imports takes hold.

But prices in Dorset have already exceeded this prediction - with one, in Sturminster Newton, currently charging 180.9p a litre for diesel.

Further east in Wimborne, at one filling station the price of diesel has increased by 14p in just one day - now costing an eye-watering 193.9p, our sister paper the Bournemouth Daily Echo reports.
