The price drop follows a continued freeze on fuel duty in today’s budget.

Asda has a national price cap on fuel at all of its 272 filling stations.

Andy Peake, Asda’s senior director for petrol said: “A further freeze on fuel duty is good news for the nation and even better news for our customers. It will allow us to keep offering lower priced fuel with a further 2ppl off diesel in all our petrol stations as of tomorrow.”
