Petrol prices hit a record 185p per litre on Sunday, as ministers asked for an urgent review into whether the fuel duty cut is being passed on to drivers.

But the AA said petrol pump prices "should be grinding to a halt, at least temporarily, by the end of the week", as wholesale prices flatten.

Soaring fuel prices have been driven by the war in Ukraine and moves to reduce Europe's dependence on Russian oil.

Motoring groups have called on the government to do more to help drivers.

The RAC said a further cut to fuel duty would be "very welcome, albeit overdue".

"The speed and scale of the increase is staggering with unleaded going up 7p in a week and diesel by nearly 6p," the group's fuel spokesman Simon Williams said.

I Call True: lets be honest he £2 litre is all but on us and nothing that the government is doing is actually helping

Simply unsustainable to 99% of us and governments seem happy to let us plebs just suffer.

Government and oil companies taking it in. The actual forecourts not so much.

The oil manufacturers, petrol station and UK government are raking it in off of this so no one is in a hurry to sort it out
