Fifth of adults could save £3,000 by giving up booze — enough to cover ­rising energy bills

 A FIFTH of adults down two pints a day in the pub but giving up could save almost £3,000, a study found — enough to cover ­rising energy bills.

And those who indulge in ten small glasses of a wine a week could save £2,168 a year by quitting.

The average British household with two adults spends £11.30 per week on alcohol, according to research for Money­Transfers.com.

This equates to £587.60 a year on booze and is more than is spent on fresh fruit and vegetables.

The average cost of a pub pint in the UK is £4.12.​

A small glass of wine is about £4.17.

But one in five adults does not drink at all, the firm said.

CEO Jonathan Merry said: “What’s clear is that for the population that drinks on a frequent basis, life-changing sums of money could be saved from a lifestyle shift.”

Regionally, Brits in the north west spend more per week on alcohol at home than any other region, at an average of £10.90 a week.

But Londoners spend the least with an at-home alcohol budget of £8.10.

This, however, could be because they are more likely to visit pubs.
