The price of fuel is expected to rise by up to 4p a litre during the next fortnight, just as thousands of families set off on their summer holidays.

Pump prices have already risen by around 1p a litre this month but a surge in the cost of oil and a weaker pound are to blame for the forecasted price hike at the pumps.
