Fuel prices cut further by UK supermarkets

Supermarket fuel prices have fallen once again, with Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons all rolling out further price cuts .
Prices at Asda’s 196 petrol stations have been slashed by 2p a litre, with the supermarket announcing that customers will pay no more than 127.7p for a litre for petrol and 132.7p a litre for diesel from Tuesday – the lowest prices since February 2011.
The latest reductions means Asda has now cut 14p off the cost of a litre of fuel since the end of April, shaving nearly £10 off the cost of filling up a family car .
Andy Peake, Asda’s petrol trading director, commented: “After a weekend of falling oil prices and fading hopes of an England victory at the Euros, our petrol price cut will bring a smile back to the nation’s faces. ”
Rivals Sainsburys, Tesco and Morrisons have all responded to the move by introducing similar cuts .
Prices at Sainsburys and Tesco forecourts have come down “by up to 2p per litre”, while Morrisons said it has already matched Asda penny-for-penny at “a number of sites”.
According to the AA, the average UK price for unleaded fuel is now 131.98p a litre while the typical cost of diesel stands at 137.32p.
