Asda knocks 2p a litre off petrol

AsdaAsda has sparked a likely supermarket fuel-price war by announcing a cut in the cost of its petrol and diesel.

From tomorrow, the price of Asda petrol will go down by 2p a litre so that no one will pay more than 131.7p a litre.

Asda diesel will be cut by 1p to 137.7p a litre.

The reductions follow a 2p cut in petrol and a 1p cut in diesel announced by Asda last week.

Andy Peake, Asda's petrol trading director, said: "Our national price cap on fuel benefits everyone across the country, meaning that no one filling up at Asda is forced to pay a premium for their fuel because of where they live."
