Asda makes further cuts to fuel prices

Petrol prices are being cut once again by supermarket giant Asda in a bid to help ease the pressure on UK motorists.
Prices have been slashed by up to 2p per litre, with the retailer promising that drivers filling up their tanks at Asda forecourts will pay no more than 134.7p for a litre of petrol and 139.7p a litre for diesel.
The move marks the first time since late February that the cost of Asda diesel has fallen below 140p-a-litre.
Andy Peake, Asda’s director of petrol trading, said: “We’re chuffed to be offering a third price move in as many weeks to hard-pressed motorists running on empty.”
Sainsbury’s has responded to the news by also announcing a fuel price cut of up to two pence per litre at its petrol stations.
A spokesman for the supermarket said: “We are doing everything we can to help our customers save money and along with the promotions we run in our stores, competitive fuel prices are a great way for us to help shoppers to meet their weekly budgets.”
Morrisons has also hit back with a 2p cut and added that in some areas motorists would be paying as little as 134p for unleaded fuel, while Tesco shoppers are once again being offered vouchers for 5p-off-a-litre when they spend £50 or more in store or online.
