ASDA announced that once again they are to lead the way and cut the price of fuel setting a new national pump price at all of its 171 petrol stations across Great Britain and Northern Ireland from tomorrow.

ASDA’s new national fuel prices will see unleaded petrol drop by 2p to 111.9 pence per litre and diesel falling by 4p to 124.9 pence per litre at all its forecourts. ASDA is calling on other retailers to give up local pricing and adopt their national fuel prices, meaning that motorists filling up at the pumps don’t pay a premium if there is no competition in the area.
