Drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 279 fillings stations across the country will only pay 97.7ppl for diesel from today (Friday, January 22).
The two pence per litre price cut on diesel takes to its lowest price in over six years.
The cost of unleaded fuel remains at 99.7ppl across the UK.
Asda’s national price cap will see diesel at 97.7ppl whilst unleaded remains at 99.7ppl across every single one of its filling stations.
Asda is the only retailer that has a national price cap on fuel at all 279 filling stations, ensuring every single customer knows the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.
Andy Peake, Asda’s senior petrol director said: “We’re delighted to be the first retailer to take diesel to its lowest price level in over six years.
‘‘This latest announcement shows that we’re committed to being the driving force behind lowering fuel prices across the UK regardless of where you live.”
Asda was the first to cut unleaded below £1 at the end of November and diesel below the £1 in January. It has claimed strong feedback from customers who said they benefitted from the price cut and would welcome further investment.
