From today motorists will be able to buy cheaper petrol at supermarkets, following cuts in the price of supermarket diesel announced last week.
Asda, Sainsbury's, Morrsions and Tesco will reduce their prices, with Morrisons cutting up to 3p a litre off petrol and 1p a litre off diesel.
RAC technical director David Bizley said: "Certainly, these price cuts will be widely welcomed by UK motorists and it is encouraging to see that the drop in the wholesale price of fuel is being passed on."
Motorists will be able to buy cheaper petrol tomorrow after four leading supermarkets announced they were cutting prices.
Here are the cuts:
- Asda are reducing the price of petrol by 2p a litre. Diesel continues at 137.7p a litre.
- Sainsbury's also announced a petrol cut of up to 2p a litre.
- Morrisons will cut petrol by 3p a litre and 1p a litre off diesel.
- Tesco is bringing in a cut of up to 2p a litre.
AA president Edmund King welcomed the cuts, he said: "We predicted these cuts last week, with oil down to its lowest level in a month and the pound gaining on the dollar after its recent fall.
"This is perhaps another glimmer of sunlight for drivers after a hard, wet, pot-holed and expensive winter of driving."
