The average price of petrol at the pumps has reached a record high, with drivers paying 96.85p a litre.
The new figure beat the previous record of 96.81p a litre reached on May 11 this year, the AA Motoring Trust said.
The average price of diesel remains below the record high of 99.19p a litre reached on May 4, with diesel currently standing at 98.74p.
The price of petrol started the year at 88.32p a litre. At the new record high, the average two-car owning family is paying an extra £19.38 on petrol per month.
UK drivers are now s pending an extra £6.14 million on petrol per day compared to the start of the year.
Ruth Bridger, petrol price analyst for the AA Motoring Trust, said: "This new record high price for petrol comes right at the start of the holiday season and this is when the cost of petrol will begin to really hurt drivers.
"Up until now, lower fuel consumption from driving in summer conditions, compared to winter, has absorbed much of the increased cost of running a car."
"Unfortunately, this will have masked just how much the cost of petrol has risen since the start of the year for many motorists.
"Only now, when they fill up for the big journeys to holiday destinations, days out, and trips to airports and ferry ports, will they see a sudden hole appear in their finances. It will also have a knock-on effect for b usinesses, such as tourism."
