Supermarket cuts cost of fuel
One of Northern Ireland’s leading supermarkets has slashed the cost of fuel. Petrol will fall 1p to 110.9p, as will diesel to 113.9p at all seven Asda forecourts across the province. The latest price represents a second cut in two weeks.
It’s good news for beleaguered Ulster motorists, where petrol and diesel cost more than other UK regions. The August Fuel Price Report showed the average cost of petrol here was 117.1p compared to a UK average of 116.5p.
Likewise, diesel cost 120p compared to an average of 119.2 — making Northern Ireland the dearest place to purchase it.
