Fuel prices continue falling as another 2p a litre slashed

Fuel prices are set to continue their downward trend, as the 'Big Four' supermarkets slash the cost of both petrol and diesel by up to 2p a litre.

Tesco will cut prices by 2p from this afternoon, while the same drop by Asda - the firm's 14th cut since September - will take effect tomorrow morning.

It means drivers filling up at Asda's pumps will pay no more than 105.7p per litre for petrol and 112.7p for diesel.

Morrisons and Sainsbury's have also announced price cuts.

The RAC predicts the price of petrol could drop below the £1 per litre level over the coming months - though the AA is more sceptical, and says rural areas in particular are being left behind.
