Following the news that the Chancellor held off a price increase on fuel duty, Asda has today (Friday 27th November) announced that it will give its customers a seasonal boost on top of the freeze by investing in an exclusive three-day price drop, knocking 4 pence per litre off fuel, meaning unleaded prices drop below the £1 mark to 99.7 pence per litre.
Asda President & CEO Andy Clarke had urged the Chancellor to continue with the freeze in the March Budget following feedback from Asda Mums that an increase would put pressure on household finances. So the confirmation this week that a freeze would remain in place was welcome news.
In the latest Mumdex report, Asda mums have made it clear what the Government needs to focus on by issuing a call to action to the Chancellor ahead of the Autumn Statement to prioritise several key areas including, imposing a limit on energy and utility prices and increasing the personal tax allowance, along with a continued freeze on fuel duty.Read more here
