ASDA today announced it is to cut diesel by up to two pence per litre bringing its lowest price on diesel since February 2011 due to the fall in wholesale costs on diesel.

The price on unleaded remains the same with a national cap of 127.7p.

From tomorrow morning, Saturday, June 6, drivers filling up at any of Asda's 234 forecourts, including Widnes and Runcorn, will benefit from the retailer’s new national price cap on diesel.

This means motorists will pay no more than 131.7 pence per litre for diesel.

Andy Peake, Asda’s petrol trading director, said: “With this latest price cut we’re now seeing the lowest diesel prices since February 2011. We’re giving our customers the opportunity to fill up their cars with lower priced diesel, putting much needed cash back in their pockets.”

Significant falls in the wholesale price of diesel are enabling Asda to pass on these cost savings directly to its customers.

To make sure all its customers benefit from the lower costs, Asda has once again reduced the prices at all its forecourts, irrespective of where customers live.
