ASDA cuts price of diesel across all petrol stations.

1 Mins read

ASDA have announced a 2p cut in the price of diesel, bringing it down to 112.7p per litre, 2p cheaper than unleaded at 114.7p per litre.

The RAC says it’s the first time since 2001 that diesel has been cheaper than unleaded fuel.

We’re the only retailer with a national price cap on fuel at all our filling stations, ensuring all our customers know the maximum price they will pay for fuel wherever they live.

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “This latest price cut means we are now well on the way to seeing a UK fuel price flip – where the average price of diesel is, quite rightly, cheaper than unleaded at the pumps. This move should be the catalyst to bring the average price of diesel down from 118.98p per litre to below unleaded’s current price of 117.24p per litre.

RAC Fuel Watch records show diesel was last cheaper than petrol 15 years ago on 17 July 2001 so it’s great news for the 10.7m diesel car drivers. Fifteen years ago when this happened last diesel was cheaper than petrol for two and a half months, but with a new supply of diesel being produced from Saudi Arabia there is a real chance that we may see the diesel price staying below petrol for some considerable time.”
