New national price cap of 133.7ppl on diesel and 126.7ppl on Unleaded
Asda today (Monday 13th January) announced it would be cutting fuel by up to 2 pence per litre – the lowest price on diesel for three months.
From tomorrow morning (Tuesday 14th January) drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 229 forecourts nationwide will benefit from the retailer’s new national price cap on diesel and unleaded, meaning motorists will pay no more than 133.7 pence per litre for diesel and 126.7 pence per litre on unleaded.
Andy Peake, Asda’s Petrol Trading Director said: “We’ve quickly passed on the latest reductions in costs which is great news for motorists, particularly with household budgets so stretched after Christmas”.
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 8 pence per litre difference across their sites.
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.
