The cost of living crisis is affecting millions of people across the UK right down to the most basic necessities like food and drink. The rapid rise in energy prices, in particular gas, has left people struggling to pay household bills.

And although the government has given out cost of living grants to many homes to help pay for things like bills, the increase in food prices has added to the general hardship the country is facing. During August food prices rose at the fastest rate since 2008, impacted by factors such as the ongoing war in Ukraine, according to the BRC-Nielsen Shop Price Index.

The Office for National Statistics most recently revealed in September that inflation in August dropped to 9.9% – down from 10.1% in July. Economists have warned though the inflation rate is likely to continue to rise, which affects the cost of food and drink.

With that in mind, SurreyLive has picked out the average cost of a litre (equivalent to 1.75 pints) of milk in Guildford compared to a handful of the other key towns in the county. The difference in price is highlighted in brackets and the results available show that Guildford is by far the most expensive area in Surrey to buy milk in at £1.16 per litre.

Epsom is the second priciest town at around 10% cheaper than Guildford. The cheapest town is Banstead at 78p a litre – one third the price of Guildford.

On average a litre of milk costs 77p overall in Surrey, which is more than a third cheaper than Guildford.
