Asda supermarket announced petrol price reduction

Asda has announced it is cutting the price of petrol as of today (September 25th).
The supermarket revealed its new national price cap will see 3p a litre shaved off the cost of both unleaded and diesel, meaning drivers who use any one of the chain’s 203 forecourts will pay no more than 135.7p per litre for the former and 139.7p per litre for the latter.
Asda explained the reductions have come as a result of a fall in wholesale costs – and the retailer was keen to pass on these savings to consumers without any coupons or other form of gimmick.
Andy Peake, petrol trading director at the supermarket, noted: “We always aim to be the first retailer in each part of the country to drop prices when costs are falling and the last to put them up.”
Mr Peake explained the company has dropped its prices across the nation, meaning people will benefit from the move regardless of where they live.
In addition, Asda also revealed customers can now make use of the group’s new petrol price checker app on their Andrioid phone, which tells them the current cots of fuel at their nearest station.
