Asda today (Friday, September 22) announced that it will be dropping the price of fuel by up to 2ppl on unleaded and 1ppl on diesel bringing prices down to a new national price cap of 115.7ppl on unleaded and 116.7ppl on diesel at all 308 filling stations.

Effective from tomorrow (Saturday, September 23), motorists will benefit from cheaper fuel as Asda again continues to be the first retailer to cut fuel prices and will be welcomed by millions of drivers across the country, following recent sharp increases caused by hurricane Harvey and Irma.

As the only retailer to have a national price cap in place, no driver will pay more than 115.7ppl on unleaded and 116.7ppl on diesel for their fuel at any Asda filling station no matter where they fill up.

Asda’s Head of Petrol Trading Dave Tyrer said: “Today’s latest move shows that Asda is once again leading the way in reducing the price at the pumps following recent sharp increases caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma. At a time when many garages and supermarkets are charging in excess of 120.9ppl, ASDA’s new price cap of 115.7ppl on unleaded and 116.7ppl on diesel will be welcomed by millions of drivers.”
