The increase in the price of petrol and diesel in London is affecting the charges of the services offered by the servicemen.
These effects increase the call-out charges (mobility fee to the job location) and also increase the price of materials and tools to do the job.
The price of petrol and diesel has risen in recent weeks. The RAC says the average price of petrol is now 186.59p per litre, with diesel 192.48p per litre. That means it costs almost £103 to fill a family car with petrol and £106 with diesel.
Some petrol stations are already charging more.
