With oil prices continuing to fall, from tomorrow morning (Tuesday 28th October), Asda has announced it will cut up to another 2ppl off the cost of unleaded and diesel, bringing the lowest fuel prices since Dec 2010.
Asda has lead the way in fuel price cuts, and over the past month the price of unleaded and diesel purchased from the supermarket has fallen by 6ppl and 5ppl respectively
How Asda’s National Price cap has fallen in the past month:
|Sunday 28th September||126.7p||129.7p|
|Tuesday 30th September||124.7p||128.7p|
|Tuesday 14th October||123.7p||126.7p|
|Friday 17th October||122.7p||126.7p|
|Tuesday 28th October||120.7p||124.7p|
Drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 240 forecourts nationwide will benefit from the retailer’s new national price cap on diesel and unleaded, meaning motorists will pay no more than 120.7 pence per litre on unleaded and 124.7 pence per litre for diesel.
The move has come after petrol prices continue to drop as oil slides to around $85 a barrel, meaning Asda will pass on the savings directly back into drivers’ pockets.
Andy Peake, Asda’s Petrol trading director said: “Asda has led and will continue to lead on these price cuts as we know how important it is that we pass savings straight back into drivers’ pockets as soon as prices fall. No matter where customers live, they will benefit from the same fuel price with our national price cap of 120.7ppl for unleaded and 124.7ppl for diesel”.
Whilst other supermarkets will follow the fuel drop, Asda is the only retailer that has a national price cap on fuel, ensuring every single one of our customers knows the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.
