IT’S OFFICIAL: BRITAIN WILL WRACK UP A SPEND OF £1.2BN ON FUEL EASTER WEEKEND

Updated: Apr 13, 2022



84 percent of Brits will be seeing friends or family at some point this Easter weekend. With an average Easter journey of 111.4 miles, Britain will clock up an amazing 3.1bn miles cumulatively from Friday to Monday – the equivalent of traveling around earth more than 124,000 times!


Britain will wrack up a fuel bill of over £1.2 bn between Good Friday and Easter Monday.


The study of 2,000 motorists which was commissioned by webuyanycar found that during each journey this Easter, drivers will spend an average of 12 minutes packing up the car. Also, what we think is really amazing is that over the course of the weekend there will be estimated 36million cries of ‘are we nearly there yet’ and 27million arguments in the car.



But, is all this pandemonium really worth it - tackling busy roads, traffic jams, arguments and the rising fuel costs? Well, yes, it is with nearly a quarter of Brits agreeing the reward of spending quality time with family or friends make it all worthwhile, and for 29 percent of motorists, driving at Easter is ‘enjoyable chaos'!


So whatever your plans, Happy Easter!
