Asda has cut its fuel prices to the lowest level in five years, taking 2ppl off unleaded petrol and 1ppl on diesel from today (Monday 26th October) – meaning its national ceiling on prices is 103.7ppl on unleaded and 106.7ppl on diesel.

Coinciding with the cut the retailer has called on the Government to maintain its freeze on fuel duty in next month’s Autumn statement.

Andy Clarke, Asda’s President & CEO said: “There are undoubtedly green shoots at a macroeconomic level and our customers are cautiously optimistic which is why they continue to save, particularly at this time of year.

“With this in mind, we urge the chancellor to continue with a freeze on fuel duty in the Autumn Statement to avoid putting more pressure on family budgets.”
