Asda cuts petrol price by 3p per litre

Asda has cut its petrol price amid a fall in wholesale costs.

The supermarket giant said it has reduced the price of a litre of petrol by 3p to £1.23 at its 322 petrol stations.

Diesel remains unchanged at £1.27 per litre.

The announcement will be a welcome relief to drivers embarking on day trips this weekend, with many areas expected to enjoy warm and sunny weather.

Asda senior fuel buyer Dave Tyrer said: “With wholesale costs falling, we’re pleased to be able to pass these savings on to our customers.”

AA fuel price spokesman Luke Bosdet said the price cut would “cheer up drivers as the summer comes to an end”.

Average UK petrol prices have remained virtually unchanged at around £1.28 per litre since mid-July, while diesel stands at £1.32 per litre.
