When Sainsburys speaks the world stops and listens. At least Bansktone News does, because we’re highly impressionable and always glad of a distraction.

The latest pronouncement from the oracular supermarket of that name is that it’s getting more expensive to run a car. Sainsburys Finance claims that motor insurance prices have risen 11% in the last five months alone.

Combined with a 10% rise in fuel costs over the same period, this has helped push the estimated annual costs of running a car up from £2,338 to £2,539.

Fear not, though: Sainsbury’s car insurance manager Ben Typo has some excellent and highly original advice for motorists. Try “shopping around,” for car insurance he suggests.
