Supermarkets announce further cut in fuel prices
Drivers are in line to benefit from lower fuel prices on the forecourts of the UK’s major supermarkets, following a dip in wholesale costs.
Fuel price reductions of 2p per ltr have been brought in by Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons, in a strategic move which will probably ease some of the financial pressure facing drivers and was announced after RAC placed pressure on the issue. It marks the second price cut by the UK’s main supermarkets this month.
Across Asda's 301 petrol stations, motorists will not pay higher than £1.13/ ltr for petrol and £1.15 for diesel, as a direct consequence of the latest changes.
Just days ago, government stats showed that motorists were paying an average of £1.19 /litre for petrol and £1.22 for diesel.
