Asda cuts price of fuel by 2p per litre
Asda has given its customers an early Christmas present by dropping the price of fuel by 2p per litre.
From tomorrow, unleaded will be at most 101.7p per litre and diesel will top 104.7 at the retailer's pumps.
A spokeswoman explained: "Asda’s new national price cap means that unlike other retailers who work on 'average prices' - drivers will pay no more than 101.7ppl on unleaded and 104.7ppl on diesel at any single one of Asda’s 277 filling stations.
"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 petrol director added: “We’re giving drivers an early Christmas present as fuel prices continue to fall.
"We know how important it is to pass savings back into motorist’s pockets in the crucial run-up to the festive period.”
“We know our competitors are likely to follow but Asda don’t have a postcode lottery on fuel meaning no matter where customers live, they will benefit from the same fuel price with our national price cap of 101.7ppl for unleaded and 104.7ppl for diesel."
