Asda slices Diesel liter cost to make it 2p less expensive than unleaded. Diesel will now cost not as much as petrol at Asda which would help for 11 million drivers. Rival supermarket stores are relied upon to go with the same pattern in the coming days, making diesel less expensive for just the second time in 15 years.
Asda will offer it for a maximum of 97.7p for each liter around the UK, with unleaded staying at 99.7p. It is the least expensive price tag for diesel for six years and the first time when it has fetched not as much as petrol since the previous summer. Before then, petrol had been less expensive since 2001.
Many other grocery stores are offering diesel for less price than unleaded, but Asda is offering this price cuts throughout all of its stores. It will offer the decreased cost at its 279 garages. Asda’s petrol chief, Andy Peake, said: “This demonstrates we’re committed on being the main driving force in bringing down fuel costs over the UK, regardless of where you live.”
Diesel wholesale costs were lower than petrol for 22 weeks of last year, however unleaded stayed less expensive at the pumps separated from the late spring blip.
