Today (Wednesday 7th November) Asda announced that it is cutting 2p a litre off the price of both diesel and unleaded.
From tomorrow morning (Thursday 8th November) drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 205 forecourts nationwide will benefit from Asda’s new national price cap, meaning motorists will pay no more than 131.7 pence per litre for unleaded and 137.7 pence per litre for Diesel.
Asda has led the way with two price cuts over the last fortnight, giving a helping hand to drivers in the run up to Christmas. The retailer reacted quickly to the latest reductions in wholesale costs and immediately passed the savings on to their customers.
Andy Peake, Petrol Trading Director said “Today’s move shows that Asda is once again leading the way in reducing the price at the pump. Unlike other retailers, our price cuts benefit everyone across the country, meaning that no-one filling up at Asda will be forced to play a postcode lottery”
Since 2008 Asda’s Income Tracker has shown the huge impact high fuel prices has on the average family’s monthly budget. The cost of filling up the family car remains a key factor in the amount of money families have to play with, with fuel 2.8pc higher in September than the previous year, putting further pressure on family spending power.
