Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has sparked a huge rise in oil prices across Europe including in Oxford.

Following the invasion on Thursday, oil prices rose to above $100 for the first time since 2014.

Russia is the world’s second-largest oil producer and is a major supplier to Europe and the largest supplier of natural gas.

Last week, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss warned Russia's invasion of Ukraine would come at a high economic cost.

She told BBC Breakfast: “First of all, if we did see a war in Ukraine, that would have a very damaging impact on oil and gas prices across Europe. This is why we need to reduce dependence on Russian gas, find alternative sources."

She added: “In fact, in the United Kingdom only 3% of our gas is from Russia, which is different from continental Europe.

“What we’ve done in the UK is we’ve frozen petrol duty for a number of years, saving people £15 on their filling-up of petrol. And we’re working to support families with the cost of living but, of course, a war in Ukraine would do further damage to the European gas market.”

We’ve put together a list of the 24-hour petrol stations in the city to help you fill up responsibly.
