ASDA and Tesco provide some Christmas cheer with cut in fuel prices

Published 17 December 2013

Motorists visiting ASDA and Tesco this Christmas will get some extra seasonal cheer after both supermarkets announced a drop in fuel prices.

The changes come into effect on 17 December and will see motorists pay no more than 126.7p per litre for unleaded and 134.7p per litre for diesel. Both retailers said they would aim to keep the prices low to reflect the fall in cost of wholesale fuel.

With drivers planning to travel on average 819 miles this December, ASDA said it will bring "some festive cheer" to hard pressed motorists.

Andy Peake, ASDA’s petrol trading director said: "With Christmas just around the corner, and finances tighter than ever, we’re pleased we can do our bit to make our customers’ hard-earned cash go a little further.

“We’re putting money back in their pockets regardless of where they fill up. Other scrooge retailers should share the Christmas spirit and follow our lead.”

A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s said they would not be cutting their prices, but would “remain competitive over the festive season”.
