Asda cuts the price of fuel: Up to 3ppl on unleaded and 2ppl on diesel

  • New national price, meaning any drivers filling up at an Asda fuel station will pay no more than 141.7ppl on Diesel and 134.7ppl on unleaded

From tomorrow morning (Wednesday 12th March) drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 213 forecourts nationwide will benefit from the retailer’s new national price cap, meaning motorists will pay no more than 134.7 pence per litre for unleaded and 141.7 pence per litre for diesel.

Asda remains the only supermarket to have a national price when it cuts the price of fuel, ensuring drivers know what they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.

Andy Peake, petrol trading director said: “We always aim to be the first retailer in each part of the country to drop prices when costs are falling and the last to put them up. “When we do drop prices, we drop them everywhere, setting a maximum national price cap for our customer, which means they all benefit from our low prices, regardless of where they live.”

Savvy motorists can also check how much they will save on fuel by using Asda’s petrol price comparison site powered by independent price checker www.petrolprices.com which enables drivers across the UK to find the lowest priced fuel before they fill up.
