Asda fuels Halton supermarket price war
FRIDAY the 13 might be unlucky for some but Halton motorists are being offered an unexpected saving as Asda is slashing the cost of petrol.
From tomorrow, Froday, September 13, they have given drivers a guarantee that they will pay no more than 133.7p per litre for unleaded and 138.7p per litre on diesel, fuelling a supermarket price war.
Asda, which has petrol stations in Widnes and Runcorn, today reacted quickly to the latest reductions in wholesale costs on unleaded and diesel by immediately passing the savings on to their customers.
Andy Peake, Asda’s petrol trading director said: “We’re giving our customers the opportunity to fill up their cars with lower priced fuel, putting much needed cash back in their pockets.
“Our national price cap benefits everyone across the country, meaning that no-one filling up at Asda will be forced to pay a premium for their fuel because of where they live.”
Whilst Asda remains the only supermarket to have a national price cap when it cuts the price of fuel, ensuring drivers know what they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live, they say other fuel retailers are getting away with charging some drivers up to 6 pence per litre difference across their sites.
In Widnes today, diesel at Tesco is 140.9p per litre and 139.9p per litre at Morrisons.
