Asda sparks an all out petrol price war - which is great news for 33million drivers

Asda fired the first shot, but the other supermarkets soon piled in to see petrol prices at the pumps cut across Britain

Asda will be cutting petrol prices 2p a litre

Supermarket chain Asda has sparked a petrol price war by slashing 2p a litre from the cost of fuel.
The move just ahead of Father’s Day and the sun soaked weekend when millions are expected to head to beaches and picnic beauty spots, will bring welcome relief to hard-up drivers.
It caps the cost of unleaded and diesel at 111.7p a litre to make Asda’s pumps the cheapest nationally.
It fired the first salvo and was quickly followed by Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons which also dropped their prices by 2p a litre.

Petrol retailers came under fire from the RAC last week for failing to pass on savings to 33 million drivers when the cost of oil tumbled to a five week low of $47.15 a barrel.

As car owners were finally able to cash in, RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams welcomed the cuts but said motorists had been kept waiting too long.

He said: “Unfortunately, a cut to the price of diesel is long overdue as its wholesale price has been lower than petrol’s for weeks with little reflection of this on the forecourt.

“While the value of the pound has fallen since the election, the price of oil has also reduced, bringing down wholesale fuel costs which should rightly be passed on to motorists at the pumps.”
