Unprecedented queues at airports and ferry terminals, union action across nearly all travel sectors and right now cars are far from an appealing proposition either. As petrol reached a new record high in July, costing 191.5p per litre and diesel in some areas exceeding £2, the AA revealed nearly two thirds of drivers had to cut back as a result of rising fuel costs.
