According to Government data, In 2020 1.27 billion tonnes of goods were carried by trucks and HGVs across the UK, covering 16.2 billion road miles.
Due recent socioeconomic and political factors the cost to fuel these HGVs has risen by £173 per week. Diesel has hit a record high of £1.70 per litre, while petrol now costs an average of £1.61 per litre.
With fuel and energy costs soaring, inflation is at its highest level for over 30 years and most of these price rises are being passed onto the consumer as firms simply cannot absorb such significant increases.
