Supermarkets cut petrol prices by two pence-per-litre

Published 21 August 2015

Following big cuts to the price of diesel, Asda, Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s have announced a two pence-per-litre reduction in the price of petrol across their forecourts. According to Asda, motorists will pay no more than 109.7 pence-per-litre for unleaded at its filling stations.

RAC spokesperson Rod Dennis said: “With a falling oil price, the wholesale price of unleaded has been dropping too and it is welcome news that drivers of petrol vehicles will now be spending less when they fill up.

“This summer has been a much cheaper one for motorists than the last. The cost of filling up an average family petrol car is now around £8 less than it was last summer, and around £12 less for a diesel car. Fuel is a major expense for millions of families in the UK, and these latest cuts are certainly helping to ease that burden.”
