Asda is following Morrisons’ lead and cutting the price of fuel at its forecourts.

The supermarket announced today that it would reduce the cost of fuel by up to 2p per litre across its filling stations. From tomorrow (8 July), petrol will now cost a maximum of 112.9ppl, with diesel down to 116.9ppl.

The reduction comes after Morrisons this morning announced it was lowering the price of petrol by 1ppl and diesel by 2ppl.

“Our long-standing commitment to British drivers means everyone benefits from our low prices,” said Asda commercial director David Miles. “Let’s hope other petrol retailers don’t penalise people who aren’t lucky enough to live near an Asda, as so often is the case.”
