Asda's national price cap goes down by 2ppl on unleaded and 1ppl on diesel
For the second time in a fortnight, Asda customers will benefit from filling up at its petrol stations after the supermarket cut up to 2ppl off unleaded and up to 1ppl off diesel on its national price cap this morning, following further decreases in the cost of wholesale oil.
Asda’s new national fuel price cap means that drivers across the country will pay no more than 122.7ppl on unleaded and 126.7ppl on diesel at any of its 318 filling stations.
The latest Asda Income Tracker report (May) revealed that increases in fuel prices put significant pressure on household incomes and that the largest and most significant upward contribution to inflation came from transport costs.
Asda’s senior fuel buyer, Dave Tyrer, said: “Once again, we are leading the market in reducing fuel prices for hard pressed families. We know from the Asda Income Tracker that transport costs put the most pressure on household incomes, so we will always do whatever we can to reduce that burden.”
“We were the first supermarket to lower pump prices last week and further decreases in the wholesale market mean we are able to reduce our prices further. This means we’ve dropped prices by up to 5ppl on unleaded and up to 3ppl on diesel in just over a week.”
