Asda leads the way as supermarkets cut fuel prices by 2p a litre

Updated on 07 November 2012 | 7 Comments

Three supermarkets - so far - have announced cuts to the price of petrol and diesel at their pumps.

The supermarket petrol pump price war has kicked off once again.

Asda led the way by announcing it was cutting the price of petrol by 2p a litre from Thursday, taking it down to 131.7p a litre. It's also cutting the price of diesel by 2p, meaning motorists will pay no more than 137.7p. 

It was followed by Sainsbury's and Morrisons announcing cuts of up to 2p at their own pumps. 

The cuts follow last week's move by four supermarkets to cut only petrol prices, as we covered in Supermarkets in petrol price war again.
