IRISH MOTORISTS will have to spend over €1,400 a year more on fuel than they did just three years ago if current forecourt prices are maintained, the AA has warned.
The average price of a litre of petrol in the Republic has now hit €1.70, according to the fuel price tracking website pumps.ie.
Worse is yet to come for consumers, with prices expected to climb by at least another five cent over the coming days, as international markets remain jittery over conflicts in Syria and Yemen and Iran’s dispute with the US and Europe over its nuclear programme continues.

THE 10 MOST expensive prescription drugs in the Republic’s biggest pharmacy chain are to fall in price by an average of 25 per cent. This will save people on medications for conditions including asthma and heart disease up to €300 a year.
The savings are the result of a dramatic overhaul of the Boots Ireland pricing model. It has abandoned the traditional 50 per cent mark-up that pharmacists add to the cost price of a drug on top of a €5 dispensing fee, in favour of a single €7 “professional services fee” that will be added to the cost price of drugs.
Industry sources said last night the move is likely to spark a prescription drug price war with other chains forced to follow suit.
That can’t be right, can it?
The mansion is located in Holmby Hills, lesser known but more exclusive then neighboring Beverly Hills or even Bel Air. It was part of the divorce settlement between Texas billionaire David Sapperstein and his wife Suzanne. In 2008, David abandoned his wife for their 32-year-old Swedish nanny and now Suzanne is sharing the mansion with her 33-year-old former soccer playing boyfriend until it is sold.
Inspired by Versailles, the 35,000 square foot house is called Fleur de Lys. It has 10 rooms, 12 bedrooms, 15 baths, a ballroom, marble walls, limestone floors, two kitchens, a 50-seat screening room, a nine-car garage, and a three-bedroom caretaker’s house.
The price? A mere snip at $125,000,000.
