The price of petrol is heading to record levels again in France, and I'm sure some are still recovering from paying for extra heating fuel after cold snap. Unfortunately petrol prices are flirting with the €1.60 a litre barrier, and domestic fuel is around the €1 a litre level.
With demand around the world for oil appearing relentless, it seems many will have to change driving habits as well as look at alternative methods of heating.
But if you want to keep an eye on petrol prices don't forget the official Prix des Carburants en France website. The site is run by the French government and collects data from thousands of filling stations across the country.
You can start your search via département, commune or postcode, with the results displaying the name of petrol stations and supermarkets closest to your chosen location and the individual prices per litre.
If you register an account with the site you can track prices over time at different stations local to you.
