Asda has announced that it is cutting 2p per litre off the price of diesel as of today (Friday January 22), reducing diesel to its lowest price for six years.

Asda’s national price cap will see diesel at 97.7p per litre whilst unleaded remains at 99.7p per litre across all of its filling stations.

Asda is the only retailer that has a national price cap on fuel at all 279 filling stations, ensuring every customer knows the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live.

Asda’s Senior Petrol Director Andy Peake said, “We’re delighted to be the first retailer to take diesel to its lowest price level in over 6 years.

“This latest announcement shows that we’re committed to being the driving force behind lowering fuel prices across the UK regardless of where you live.”

Asda was the first to cut unleaded below £1 at the end of November and diesel below £1 in January, received strong feedback from customers who said they benefitted from the price cut and would welcome further investment.
