Spring boost for motorists as we cut fuel price by up to 2p per litre

Here’s some good news for motorists – we’re cutting the price of unleaded petrol and diesel by up to 2p per litre.

We've cut the price of fuel

From tomorrow, customers at our 301 filling stations across the country will pay no more than 114.7p per litre on unleaded and 116.7p per litre on diesel.

The price drop follows a fall in wholesale fuel prices over the last week. In Asda’s latest Income Tracker Report vehicle fuel, one of the key essential items for consumers, has increased by 16.8% year on year, caused by a combination of currency movement and an increase in worldwide oil prices, along with a rise in inflation. The report shows that petrol prices had the largest impact on the rise of the cost of living for families.

Asda’s Head of Petrol Trading Dave Tyrer said: “Today’s latest move shows that Asda is once again leading the way in reducing the price at the pumps to help the millions of motorists across the UK.”

Simon Williams from the RAC added: "This is the perfect spring gift for motorists to go with longer days and warmer weather. No doubt other retailers will follow suit and we will see prices on every forecourt come down.

“This should now help to bring prices down on every forecourt from the 120p average for unleaded and 122p for diesel.”
