Asda, Sainsbury's and Morrisons will cut their petrol and diesel prices by 2p a litre from tomorrow in an attempt to encourage motorists to visit their stores. Prices have risen on average 1p a litre over the past month.

The AA President Edmund King welcomed the news: "Our June fuel price report revealed that retailers had on average this year been charging at least a 1p per litre extra on diesel. Hence we believe that all retailers should look to cut fuel prices to reflect the market price at the pumps".
