Fuel price rises for the eleventh consecutive week
Have you factored that increase in costs into higher lesson prices?
Considering how much time driving instructors spend on the road, it’s no surprise a change in fuel prices can have a big impact on your business.
But are we too slow to react to these external factors?
Fuel in general is now at it’s highest price since 2014 and an average litre of unleaded costs a whopping £1.31 and diesel £1.35.
Whilst some will look at the relatively small impact this has on 1 lesson, the AA fuel report from January 2018 states that a litre of petrol was £1.23.
The concerning thing more than the difference in price, is the ongoing trend.
All the noises coming from the government are aimed at potentially increase fuel duty, but that hasn’t come to fruition as yet.
It will be interesting to see where prices go from here, especially as more details are released on the ‘B’ word.
