Great news – we’re cutting the price of fuel by up to 2p per litre!

From tomorrow (Tuesday June 25), you’ll pay no more than 130.7p per litre for unleaded and 134.7p per litre for diesel when you fill up at any of our 218 forecourts across the country.

We’ve reacted quickly to the latest reductions in wholesale cost by immediately passing the savings on to you.

The latest cut comes hot on the heels of a study by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) which found that the average family could save up to £50 per year by filling up at Asda.

The report also found that we consistently have the lowest petrol prices of any retailer – our prices have fallen by up to 3.3p per litre in May from April.

We’re still the only supermarket with a national price cap on fuel – so you know what you’ll pay at an Asda pump regardless of where you live. Prices at some other retailers vary by up to 6p per litre depending on where you are.

Andy Peake, Petrol Trading Director, said: "We’re giving our customers the opportunity to fill up their cars with lower-priced fuel, putting much-needed cash back in their pockets.

“Our national price cap benefits everyone across the country, meaning that no-one filling up at Asda will be forced to pay a premium for their fuel because of where they live.”

Similar cuts now announced by Tesco, Morrisons & Sainsbuty as they attempt to follow the lead set by Asda.

****!!! Filled up @ Asda this morning!!! Oh well, next week for me. Thanks for the heads up.

They increased prices near me 2 weeks ago. Just brings it back down to what it was

increase by 1p then 'cut' prices by 1p - taking us all for mugs again!!

Thanks for the heads up though

Love ASDA!!!

exactly... all the supermarkets are total *****. Went to this price last time they make this pledge that you won't pay more than X. then it last about 4 days and the price goes up again.

even if you have just filled your car you have only lost about £1.30 dependent on the size of your tank. on a spend of about £90 to fill a tank £1.30 is hardly noticeable

Another **** non-promotion

maybe instead of moaning we should give up driving our cars 5 mins down the road and walk?

unquestioned

Another **** non-promotion



Yeah, but I've added some heat for effort. It is a price drop after all (even if it does just reverse a recent price rise)

Sainsburys doing similar. Expect the other 2 supermarkets to follow suit

Diesel here has been 134.9 per litre at an non supermarket for a week or so, so if they can do it Asda should be cheaper again

Yawn !!
Oil per barrel has dropped to 106$ and demand has dropped by 20% over the years and they drop the prices bya couple of pence and its hailed as a deal saving you roughly 1%

Would everyone goes go nuts and flock to Asda if it dropped 1.5p off a £1.35 loaf of bread ?

Theres also a Tesco spend petrol offer, spend £50 instore or online on groceries and get 5p off per lire (today to 30th June)

hooray henry

How many people do you know go into Asda and buy 40-60 loaves of bread at a time?

i remember the days wen fuel was 70-80p a litre.. pre recession days ahh

Cold

Joke petrol prices are anyway

Id rather fill up at Shell for about 3-4p more per litre, i get more MPG out of my car on their fuel with their additives than the crappy supermarket fuels.

same **** different day.

Well done supermarkets...

We will all be paying through the nose at Asda just the same as anywhere else...I really don't think its worth the fanfare of posting here on HUKD how we are all getting ripped off in this country for fuel regardless of what deals supermarkets are doing!

2p is better than a kick it the teeth, but I would just like to know how much of the 'barrel' price cut these retailers are NOT passing on to us. Always down 1 or 2p, but creeps back up by 3, 4 or 5p as soon as the wholesale price goes up. Sorry, just in a bah humbug mood today.

Am I meant to be happy about paying 130.7p?

Sainsbury's are now following suit...

How many people do you know that really get excited by the thought of saving 60p on a £60 fill up ? In fact this hot deal of a discount doesnt even save you enough to buy a loaf of bread when spending £60 on poor quality Asda petrol.???

BTW oil just dropped to $100 thats %5 in a day, so will petrol come down accordingly? No chance.

What a load of crap. We would never have these 'deals' if the thieves didn't put the price up another 5p the week after these 'deals' end.

This must be the 5th or 6th time just this year we have seen Supermarkets 'reduce' prices to 130.9p but almost into the 7th month of the year, we are still at the same rip off price as before.

nt get me wrong, any saving is great but please use your brain before voting this up.

So the miles i get from a tank of supermarket fuel was much less than that of when i filled up with Shell. First hand experience is now urban myth? It MUST be urban myth just because you disagree with it.

Personally I think everyone should only buy from the cheapest garage even if that meant traveling to get it, this would force down the prices eventually as everyone would be competing to be that cheapest place.

Obviously never happen but would work.

So how come it keeps going down but remains the same?

Filled up at sainsburys this morning 131.9 , normally use BP at 134.9 which gives me more MPG, get my diesel car back from garage end of the week so back to 137.9 at BP. Supermarket diesel reduces my MPG and car doesn't feel as responsive

Petrol went up 2p around here in the last 7 days or so. Now here comes the 2p price cut. Coincidence?

Haters gonna hate...

End of the day, Asda lower prices by ~5p/ltr in my area, other retailers will price-match. Regardless of how long it lasts (which you can't really blame the retailer for anyway), 5p/ltr is still 5p/ltr.

Of course all this is done in the hopes that you'll buy groceries from Asda, but personally, the nearest Asda is so far away it's uneconomical to go there. Good news for drivers everywhere that a retailer is dropping prices, as that'll drive everyone's price down.

It's nonsense. You would have to measure your true mpg over several tankfuls to even begin to make a real comparison. It's the same stuff for goodness' sake!

I remember when fuel was less than 10 bob a gallon ... pre-decimilisation day ahh

I have been using the site below to find the lowest price in my area for about 3 years(you can even set up a weekly e-mail to keep you updated on the lowest prices)

This 130.7 was my lowest price at one of my local petrol station last Monday.

Surely this is so hard to prove though?

Different driving conditions, different routes, different tyre pressures, different weather etc.

My car changes so much from month to month with regards to how many miles i can get out the tank. I just simply fill up at the cheapest place and be done with it.

Science. You've not heard of it, have you?

Have a think about all the things that might have changed between the two different 'experiments' you conducted. Now, if you have another think, you'll realise that it's practically impossible to measure fuel economy difference on a couple of samples.

Yup Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury's have all announced a cut in petrol and diesel prices from tomorrow.

suggest you do your homework numpty.
How is higher octane fuel benefit a myth?

stupid comment of the day award right there

I agree with bettsy.

Fuel additives can make a huge difference, better fuel economy, lower emissions, better response.
Google techron to see more.
That's why they sell 2 types of petrol at the pumps. RON 95 and RON 97
The more expensive RON 97 will give you more mpg and a better driving experience, not to mention better for your car.
