Asda drops national price cap to 133.7ppl on unleaded following a cut off up to 2ppl

  • New national price cap means any drivers filling up at an Asda fuel station will pay no more than – 133.7ppl on unleaded and 137.7 ppl on diesel.

From tomorrow morning (Tuesday 16th April) drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 217 forecourts nationwide will benefit from the retailer’s national price cap of 133.7 pence per litre on unleaded following a cut of up to 2ppl on unleaded. This follows last week’s cut on Diesel to 137.7ppl.

Diesel fuel remains the same following last week’s 2 ppl litre price cut with Asda’s national price cap at 137.7 pence per litre which is 4 ppl cheaper than the national average diesel price.

Whilst Asda remains the only supermarket to have a national price cap when it cuts the price of fuel, ensuring drivers know what they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live, other fuel retailers are getting away with charging some drivers up to 6 pence per litre difference across their sites.

Andy Peake, petrol trading director, said: “From Tuesday, everybody filling up at an Asda fuel station will pay no more than 133.7 pence per litre for unleaded and 137.7p for diesel, unlike some of our competitors whose postcode lottery pricing means prices can vary across their forecourts by up to six pence per litre”.

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.
