Asda slashes price of unleaded petrol to 137.7ppl
It also dropped the price of its diesel to 137.7ppl.
Despite fuel price cuts from all of the ‘big four’ supermarkets, Asda is the only one to have a national price cap.
Tesco, Morrison’s and Sainsbury’s have come under criticism from motoring groups because despite lowering the price of their petrol by 2ppl, it is unclear whether motorists all over the country will be able buy at that rate.
George Charles, from www.VoucherCodesPro.co.uk, said: “Fuel prices are often a source of frustration and annoyance, as many people regard it as an unavoidable expense. So any retailer that appears to help out the average motorist is going to get an encouraging reception.
“It wasn’t all that long ago that there was uproar about the cost of a litre of petrol going above £1. Nowadays, that would be regarded as an absolute bargain.
“The fact that the majority of supermarkets operate a postcode lottery when it comes to pricing only serves to increase bitterness amongst consumers.
“Needing to fill up away from home can leave you marvelling at the lucky locals benefiting from lower prices in other areas of the country.”
