Asda leads way on fuel price cuts
Asda has cut up to 2ppl off its national unleaded and diesel prices in a move expected to be followed by the other supermarket fuel retailers.
Effective from today, the price drop brings unleaded and diesel prices to 118.7ppl and 119.7ppl respectively at Asda’s 316 filling stations.
The price cut comes a day after the RAC urged the supermarket retailers to slash fuel prices in the wake of a $5 fall in the price of a barrel of oil.
RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “This should spark a chain reaction with the other supermarkets and fuel retailers across the country.
“After three months of petrol and diesel going up it’s a relief to see prices at the pumps finally coming down again just in time for half-term when more people will be taking to the roads.”
