Supermarkets in 2p fuel cut
FOUR supermarkets have given motorists a treat by cutting petrol prices by 2p a litre.
Asda, Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury’s made the move after fuel retailers were accused of not passing on savings from lower wholesale costs.
Over the past six months, the cost of filling up a typical 55-litre family car with petrol or diesel has risen by around £6.
The average cost of fuel at UK filling stations stands at £1.30 per litre for petrol, according to new Government figures.
Asda said the 2p price cut would now mean their customers would never pay more than 122.7p per litre for petrol and 134.7 for diesel.
Diesel vehicle owners have been hit by price rises for 18 consecutive weeks, reaching an average of £1.37 per litre.
