Asda offers good news to drivers with national fuel price cuts

ASDA has responded to the recent drop in the price of oil with up to 3p a litre fuel price cut from Tuesday July 22nd.

The retailer has passed these savings on to its customers by setting new lower pump prices at all of its 170 plus petrol stations across Great Britain and Northern Ireland from tomorrow morning.

ASDA trading director, David Miles said:

“We are seeing a more stable reduction in oil prices allowing us to pass on the savings to customers. We urge other retailers to follow our lead at a time when customers need as much help as possible.

“The latest price cut is a further example of ASDA making motoring more affordable and illustrates our commitment to passing on cost savings to our customers.”

ASDA’s new national fuel prices will see unleaded petrol drop to 113.9 pence per litre with diesel falling to 128.9 pence per litre at all its forecourts.

To make sure all its customers benefit from the lower costs, ASDA has reduced the prices at all its forecourts to the same level, irrespective of where customers live and the prices set by local competitors.

Over the last few weeks, the price per barrel has gone from its peak of $147 to a $130.

On top of this price reduction, all ASDA credit cardholders are currently entitled to a further two pence per litre of fuel discount when paying with their card.
