Asda continues to be the UK’s cheapest national chain on fuel
Weekend relief for drivers everywhere tomorrow (Saturday 8th August) as Asda announces a fuel price cut of up to 2ppl on diesel and up to 1ppl unleaded. The supermarket announces a drop in the price of diesel bringing it down to its lowest price since early 2010 108.7ppl and a drop in unleaded bringing it down to 111.7ppl at all its 272 petrol stations.
Effective from Saturday 8th August Asda’s new national price cap means drivers will pay no more than 108.7ppl on diesel and 111.7ppl on unleaded. Meaning Asda continues to be the UK’s cheapest national chain on fuel, something it has been for the last four years.
Asda is the only retailer that has a national price cap on fuel at all 272 filling stations, ensuring every single one of our customers knows the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.
Andy Peake, Asda’s Senior Director for Petrol said: “It’s the summer holidays and we know families will be getting out and about all across the country which is why we’re cutting yet more cost off the price of filling up your car. They will pay no more than 108.7ppl for diesel and 111.7ppl on unleaded at any Asda forecourt, and every single one of our customers knows this is the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.”
RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “July was a bumper month for diesel vehicle drivers with the average price falling by 5p a litre, saving £3 on a fill-up. Now August is off to a flying start with another substantial cut which will help shave another couple of pounds off a tank of diesel, just as millions of people head off on holiday by car.
“Returning to a diesel price last seen in 2010 is probably something the country’s 10.7 million diesel car owners never thought they would see.
“With oil prices just under the $50 a barrel mark, there’s every chance even more cuts are just around the corner. And, if oil stays low and wholesale diesel remains abundant, we could even have a chance of seeing £1 a litre diesel.”
