THREE of the UK’s big four supermarket chains have dropped their fuel prices.

Asda is leading the way, announcing that it has dropped its petrol and diesel prices to its lowest for two years, with a 2p per litre reduction across its filling stations.

It is the second reduction by the supermarket in February and means it has cut its forecourt prices by 9p a litre since the start of 2020.

Motorists filling up at any of Asda’s 322 filling stations will pay no more than 116.7ppl on unleaded and 118.7ppl on diesel.

The reduction means diesel has dropped below 120ppl for the first time in two years.

Asda senior fuel buyer, Dave Tyrer said: “We’re pleased to be passing on wholesale cost reductions to customers. It will be a welcomed boost, especially to diesel drivers who are seeing some of the lowest fuel prices since 2018.”

Other fuel retailers have been urged to follow the supermarkets’ lead.
