LEEDS, England, 2015-9-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Effective from today (Wednesday 23rd September) Asda brings good news to drivers by dropping the price of unleaded by 2ppl. Asda’s new national price cap means that unlike other retailers who work on ‘average prices’ – drivers will pay no more than 105.7ppl on unleaded whilst diesel remains at a national price cap of 107.7ppl.
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 now seeing unleaded move back to its traditional place after two months of diesel being the cheapest fuel grade. This new drop means drivers across the country will pay no more than 105.7ppl for unleaded and diesel remains at 107.7ppl.”
RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “This is yet more good news for petrol car drivers who have enjoyed prices coming down in August as a result of a barrel of oil staying around or below $50 since the end of July. It’s very encouraging to see savings in wholesale petrol being quickly passed on to motorists at the pump.
“This should also have the very positive effect of reducing prices from other retailers around the country. Hopefully this will drive the average price of a litre of unleaded down well below its current level of 111p, back towards the six-year average low of 106p a litre we saw in January.”
