How much does fuel cost for an airline flight?

When I spend hundreds of pounds on a transatlantic air fare, and hear the airlines complain on high fuel costs, I wonder how much of the money I pay is for fuel.

British Airways have just raised their fuel surcharge to 6 pounds per long haul flight, stating that the surcharge is to cover the 12.5% rise in fuel cost that they've just had. So that means that fuel costs are 48 pounds per single transatlantic flight, or 96 pounds on a return ticket. I think I trust this estimate - someone else talked about a 45% fuel cost rise over a year and how the surcharge covers a third of it ... and I understand that Virgin Atlantic have also applied a similar 6 pound charge.
