Motoring price index

This chart plots the percentage change in the price of various aspects of motoring over a rolling ten year period. Also plotted is the cost of living (RPI) over the same period. The chart shows that over time operational costs have generally risen significantly above the rate of inflation while the cost of buying a vehicle has not increased as much as inflation.
