Like everyone else in the country, we know that Lake District Mobility members will be feeling the impact of the cost of living crisis.
The BBC reported last week that the price of diesel at UK pumps had gone above £1.90 for the first time in nearly three months. It may not be as high as the record costs seen at the start of July, but it is still rising at a 40 year high.
And as the BBC reports, people living in rural areas are not only more likely to be dependent on cars for travelling longer distances with less public transport coverage, but also rural communities tend to pay 1-2p a litre more than urban areas.
At Lake District Mobility we want to be aware of the issues facing our users when it comes to using our Trampers. We’d like to know if this has – or will – affect your Tramper use. Are you less likely to consider travelling to a Tramper site because of the cost of fuel?
If you have any comments, it would be great if you could let us know by clicking on this link.
