LEEDS-based supermarket giant Asda was today set to join rivals and cut the price of petrol and diesel again.
Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s were today due to reduce petrol and diesel by 2p a litre after Tesco’s 2p-a-litre cut yesterday afternoon.
The reductions mean Asda customers will pay no more than 105.7p a litre for petrol and 112.7p a litre for diesel. It is Asda’s 14th fuel price cut since the end of September, with 21p a litre coming off its petrol price and 17p a litre off diesel.
For Morrisons and Sainsbury’s, it is the seventh cut since the start of December.
RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “The cuts are bringing us ever closer to the £1-per-litre average for petrol.”
AA president Edmund King said: “Further drops in the pump price are extremely welcome. However, small rural towns are again being left behind by the price falls in the more competitive areas.”
