Petrol has crept over £1.90 per litre, while diesel is not far off £2, and chancellor Rishi Sunak is considering calls for a more substantial fuel duty cut.
Things are so bad that some people are unable to afford to fuel to get to work.
While help from the government would be welcomed by motorists, there are things they can do themselves to cut costs amid the fuel crisis. Here are our nine tips...
Every month figures are released by the AA showing the cheapest places to buy fuel, and supermarkets are almost always the cheapest.
Driving as smoothly as possible will maximise your car's fuel efficiency. Accelerate gently - and importantly, avoid excessive speeds and heavy braking. Most dashboards now tell you your MPG - you could set yourself weekly targets to try and get this up. If you do, take note: many cars are most efficient when driven between 45mph and 50mph.
On hills, gain momentum by accelerating a little before you reach them, then ease off as you drive up.
Roof boxes create wind resistance and raise fuel consumption - take it off when not using it. Empty roof racks add 16% drag when driving at 75mph, according to the Energy Saving Trust.
Look at how often you use air con and heating - they drain fuel.
De-clutter your car - extra weight means more fuel is needed to power the vehicle.
Check your tyres are inflated to the pressure stated in your owner's manual. Under-inflated or over-inflated tyres cut fuel economy.
Warm engines are more efficient than cold ones, so making one round trip is better for fuel efficiency than several short journeys, even though the mileage could be the same.
Do you have to drive? Consider walking or cycling rather than driving for short journeys.
