Supermarkets reveal further fuel price cuts
Friday 19 April 2013
Motoring is to get a little cheaper following further fuel price reductions announced today by supermarkets.
The new cuts come just days after they announced 2p-3p a litre cuts on petrol.
In the latest round of cuts, Asda said it was reducing its petrol and diesel prices by up to 2p a litre from tomorrow.
Then Tesco said it was also cutting up to 2p a litre off its petrol and diesel - also from tomorrow.
And the third supermarket to announce cuts was Sainsbury's, which is also bringing in reductions of up to 2p a litre on petrol and diesel from Saturday.
Asda said that from Saturday morning its customers would pay no more than 131.7p a litre for petrol and 135.7p a litre for diesel.
Asda's petrol trading director Andy Peake said: "We're pleased to be reducing the price of fuel yet again for all our customers.
"Our national price cap benefits everyone across the country, meaning that no-one filling up at Asda will be forced to pay a premium for their fuel because of where they live."
Tesco petrol category director, Peter Cattell, said: "Tesco is dropping the price of petrol and diesel by up to 2p per litre from tomorrow.
"As Britain's biggest fuel retailer with 497 forecourts, more motorists make savings at Tesco petrol filling stations than any other fuel retailer."
Richard Crampton, Sainsbury's head of fuel, said: "We are always looking at ways to help our customers save money and we know that fuel is a big part of household budgets which is why we are pleased to announce that from tomorrow, we will be cutting petrol and diesel prices by up to 2p per litre across our 280 forecourts."
