9:00am Wednesday 13th March 2013 in News
Supermarket Asda today[wed] cut the price of fuel by up to 3p a lire on unleaded and 2p on diesel and introduced a new national fuel price cap .
It means that anyone filling up at any of Asda's 213 forecourts will pay no more than 134.7p per litre for unleaded and 141.7p a litre for diesel. Asda said it is the only supermarket to have a national price so that drivers know what they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.
Andy Peake, petrol trading director said: “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.
“When we do drop prices, we drop them everywhere, setting a maximum national price cap for our customer, which means they all benefit from our low prices, regardless of where they live.”
