Relief for drivers as supermarkets cut petrol prices

Several supermarkets are slashing the cost of fuel from today following a fall in wholesale prices.

Asda is cutting the price of unleaded petrol and diesel by up to 2p per litre.

That means customers at its 301 filling stations will pay no more than 114.7p per litre on unleaded and 116.7p per litre on diesel.

Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco also confirmed they are dropping the price of unleaded and diesel by up to 2p per litre at their forecourts.

A Tesco spokesperson said: “We know that low fuel prices are important to our customers so to provide a little extra help, we’re cutting the cost of petrol and diesel by up to 2ppl at all of our 500 filling stations.”

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “This is the perfect spring gift for motorists to go with longer days and warmer weather. No doubt other retailers will follow suit and we will see prices on every forecourt come down.

“While this cut may come as a surprise to drivers as prices at the pump have been going the wrong way for months, it has been on the cards for a couple of weeks – we’re very relieved retailers have acted without any need for outside encouragement.”
