Asda and Sainsbury’s cut fuel prices

Written by: Paloma Kubiak
Asda sparked a petrol price war after announcing it has cut fuel by up to 2p per litre.

Drivers filling up at any one of Asda’s 322 petrol stations will pay no more than 117.7p per litre on unleaded and 122.7p per litre on diesel.

Asda senior fuel buyer, Dave Tyrer, said: “We know how important saving money is for our customers at this time of year, so we will always aim to keep the cost of essentials down whether that’s on fuel, food or fashion. Over the last two weeks we’ve brought fuel prices down by up to 4ppl without any vouchering requirements meaning all our customers, regardless of their budget, will benefit from a price cut at the pumps.”

Just last week, The AA criticised fuel vouchers and discounts offered by other supermarkets, saying they discriminate against some customers. However, it praised Asda for leading the way when it comes to passing on fuel discounts direct to customers, rather than offering money off fuel vouchers.

Earlier this week, Sainsbury’s announced shoppers will get 10p off a litre of fuel when they spend £60 or more on groceries. But from Sunday it will cut the price of unleaded by up to 2p per litre and diesel by up to 1p per litre across its 315 forecourts.

Sainsbury’s added that customers can use the money off fuel vouchers against the petrol price drop.
