Drivers who do not live near a supermarket are paying up to 5p a litre more for petrol, the AA has warned. Asda was praised by the AA as having the most consistently low prices of all the supermarkets. According to the Daily Mail, drivers who live near an Asda store are paying 103.9p a litre, but elsewhere prices are as high as 108.9p.
"Drivers can’t expect to pay 103.p a litre for petrol in every town, but being charged as much as 5p a litre more at the cheapest outlet in a substantially built-up area well served by supermarkets is a rip-off," said AA president Edmund King.
