Affordability is a big blocker for young buyers
"The price of petrol at the pumps has risen to a new high, exceeding the cost of an average family weekly food shop for the first time. After a brief halt following weeks of increases, the average cost of petrol has gone up to 142.48p a litre, according to motoring group AA". On inflation - another over-optimistic guesstimate from the BoE bites the dust. (Mervyn will blame those dastardly tanker drivers, for sure).
