Asda and Tesco slash fuel prices

DRIVERS have received some pre-Christmas cheer in the form of lower supermarket petrol prices.

First Asda announced that from today it was cutting up to 2p a litre off its petrol and 1p off its diesel.

Then Tesco said it, too, was reducing its petrol by up to 2p a litre while also cutting diesel by 1p - also from today.The Asda reductions mean its customers will pay no more than 126.7p a litre for petrol and 134.7p for diesel.

Asda petrol trading director Andy Peake said: "With Christmas just around the corner, and finances tighter than ever, we're pleased we can do our bit to make our customers' hard-earned cash go a little further."

Pete Williams, head of external affairs at the RAC, said:"Cheaper fuel is something motorists will widely welcome. The wholesale price of fuel is at its lowest rate since early November so we hope that other retailers pass on a similar saving."
