LEEDS, UK, 2015-8-24— /EPR Retail News/ — Weekend relief for drivers today (Friday 21st August) as Asda announces a fuel price cut on unleaded bring the price down from 111.7ppl to 109.7ppl. The supermarket announces the drop on the back of a rewarding month for motorists and those filling up their tanks. Asda has lead the way on price cuts which have seen the price of fuel drop from 9ppl on diesel and 5ppl on unleaded in the last month.

Effective from today (Friday 21st August) Asda brings good news to unleaded drivers after a series of Diesel price drops. Asda’s new national price cap means that unlike other retailers who work on ‘average prices’ – drivers will pay no more than 109.7ppl on unleaded whilst diesel remains at a market leading national price cap of 106.7ppl.

Asda is the only retailer that has a national price cap on fuel at all 272 filling stations, ensuring every single one of our customers knows the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.

Andy Peake, Asda’s Senior Director for Petrol said: “We’re bringing some good news to unleaded motorists following a series of diesel price cuts. As we head towards the busiest bank holiday weekend of the year on our roads, this new drop means drivers across the country will pay no more than 109.7ppl for unleaded and diesel remains at a market leading 106.7ppl at our forecourts.”

RAC spokesman Rod Dennis said: “This latest price cut from Asda, coming just two weeks after the last, will be met with cheer from drivers of the country’s 19 million petrol cars, who will have noticed that diesel drivers have been enjoying substantially lower prices for over a month now.

“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.”
