Effective from today, Friday 13th September, Asda customers will benefit from filling up at one of its 322 petrol stations after the supermarket announced they are cutting the price of unleaded fuel by 3 pence per litre following continued decreases in wholesale costs.

As of Friday morning any driver filling up at an Asda petrol station will pay no more than 122.7ppl on unleaded, whilst Diesel remains the same at 126.7ppl.

Asda Senior Fuel Buyer, Dave Tyrer, said "With wholesale costs falling, we’re pleased to be able to pass on these savings onto our customers. Drivers filling up at an Asda filling station will pay no more than 122.7ppl on Unleaded and 126.7ppl on diesel.”

“With average UK petrol prices stuck at around 128.5p -129.0p a litre since mid-August, a saving of 6p a litre or more than £3 a tank will cheer up drivers as the summer comes to an end,” says Luke Bosdet, the AA’s fuel price spokesman.

“Other supermarkets have gone down the route of forcing their customers to spend £40 or £60 in store before offering money off their fuel.

“The superstore business model depends on customers driving to shop. Asda seems to understand that relationship, while rivals too often exploit it.”
