The Leeds-based supermarket is to cut another 1 pence per litre off unleaded petrol meaning unleaded is now priced at 114.7ppl, with disesl priced at 119.7ppl.
Andy Peake, Asda’s Petrol Trading Director said: “Asda again are leading the way with our third price cut in two weeks, giving customers the chance to fill up their tanks with some of the cheapest fuel around, as we know how important it is to pass savings back into motorists’ pockets as soon as oil prices fall. No matter where customers live, they will benefit from the same fuel price with our national price cap of 114.7ppl for unleaded and 119.7ppl for diesel”.
The move will doubtless see other supermarkets follow suit. Last month both Morrisons and Tesco both announced 2ppl cuts.
AA spokesman Luke Bosdet said: “Any cut in the price of petrol and diesel is welcome, although the extent to which these lower prices are available is key.”
