Sainsbury’s cuts pump prices by up to 3p per litre

Written by:
Sainsbury’s is the latest supermarket to cut the price of petrol and diesel following a fall in wholesale costs.

The supermarket giant will cut the price of unleaded by up to 2p per litre and diesel by up to 3p per litre across all 315 forecourts.

However, drivers will need to wait until tomorrow (Thursday 5 November, the start of England’s second lockdown) to bag the savings.

Customers will also be able to collect one Nectar point on every litre.

David Pegg, fuel buying manager for Sainsbury’s, said: “We are committed to delivering value for our customers, especially during these uncertain and challenging times, which is why we’re reducing the price of unleaded petrol and diesel across every single one of our forecourts from tomorrow.

“Whether in store or at the pumps, customers know they will get fantastic value with Sainsbury’s.”

The move comes a day after Asda was first off the mark to announce pump price cuts of up to 3p per litre, taking effect from yesterday.
