Asda cuts another 2p off fuel

Asda sparked off another battle in the supermarket fuel price war today by knocking a further 2p a litre off the cost of its petrol and diesel.

The company said that from tomorrow morning drivers filling up at Asda will pay no more than 128.7p a litre for petrol and no more than 132.7p a litre for diesel.

The reduction followed a 3p cut in fuel costs by Asda and other supermarkets last week following a fall in the international price of oil.

Asda's petrol director Andy Peake said: "Customers shouldn't have to buy into gimmicks and promotions to benefit from cheaper petrol. No-one should have to pay a premium on food to lower the cost of fuel.

"Once again Asda is leading the way in saving drivers money and, in only 72 hours, we've taken up to 5p a litre off the cost of filling up."
