In Sheffield, the most expensive recorded pump in the city as of July 3 was selling unleaded for 196p per litre.

Protestors will form a rolling road block by driving slowly on the 70mph routes in a call for further cuts to fuel duty.
Activists, mostly made up of everyday residents and lorry drivers, are calling for further cuts to fuel duty.
Social media groups set up to organise the protests claim there are plans to close the Prince of Wales bridge between England and Wales.
The ‘Fuel Price Stand Against Tax’ Facebook group currently has 48,000 members.
Meanwhile, the M180 near Doncaster saw some disruption this morning from the demonstrations.
The Government said despite seeing motorists’ frustrations, people's day-to-day lives should not be disrupted and warned that traffic delays “will only add to fuel use”.
It comes as the RAC reports that, currently, out of a 191p paid for a litre of petrol, 84p is going to the Government in tax and fuel duty.
It comes after Chancellor Rishi Sunak cut fuel duty by 5p per litre in March this year, when unleaded prices were averaging 165p per litre in the UK.
Mr Sunak has said he will carefully consider calls for a “more substantial” fuel duty cut.
In early June, business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng ordered an enquiry by the UK’s competition watchdog to see if the 5p cut was properly passed on to motorists.
