Supermarket giant Asda has dropped diesel prices to the lowest levels in almost two years.
The company announced yesterday that it would cut the cost of diesel by up to 2p per litre, bringing its lowest price on diesel since July 2012. Unleaded will come down by up to 1p per litre.
From this morning, drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 230 forecourts nationwide will benefit from the retailer’s new national price cap on diesel and unleaded, meaning motorists will pay no more than 132.7 pence per litre for diesel and 126.7 pence per litre on unleaded.
Andy Peake, Asda’s petrol trading director said: “We’re the only supermarket that has a national price cap on fuel, ensuring drivers know the price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live”.
