RISHI Sunak fluffs buying petrol during an awkward photo op — by wrongly holding his contactless card to a barcode scanner.
The Chancellor had just put £30 of fuel in a Kia Rio borrowed from staff at Sainsbury’s in New Cross, South London, to promote his 5p fuel tax cut.
And he later got it wrong when asked the price of a loaf of bread — but blamed it on “different types of bread in my house”.
He said: “We have a whole range of different things — we all have different breads in my house, a degree of healthiness between my wife, myself and my kids.”
Rishi said he paid £1.20 for a seeded Hovis, but Tesco flogs it for £1.75.
He also denied a firm his billionaire wife has a £500million stake in was profiting from the Putin regime, saying he “didn’t think it was the case”.

Last week he urged British businesses to “think carefully” about working in Russia.
His wife Akshata Murthy is the daughter of Indian billionaire Nagavara Ramarao Narayana Murthy, who co-founded business consulting firm Infosys.
The couple now have two daughters together, Krishna and Anoushka.
Before entering politics he worked for investment bank Goldman Sachs and a hedge fund, then co-founded an investment firm.
