Andy Peake, Asda's petrol trading director, said: "Families across Britain are crying out for help when it comes to managing their budgets and we know every fuel reduction makes a real difference."
Richard Crampton, Sainsbury's head of fuel, said: "We want our customers to benefit from the recent drop in the wholesale price of fuel."
Pete Williams, the RAC's head of external affairs said he was pleased major fuel retailers were passing on the wholesale price drop to motorists.
He went on: "It may only seem a small saving per tank but the overall savings really add up over time and it's important that the retailers pass on these savings as quickly as possible to maintain the confidence and trust of motorists."
