Asda has again slashed the price of fuel across its forecourt estate – this time by up to 3ppl.

As of today drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 203 petrol stations across the country will pay no more than 135.7ppl for unleaded and 139.7ppl for diesel.

Petrol trading director Andy Peake said: “We always aim to be the first retailer in each part of the country to drop prices when costs are falling and the last to put them up.

“And when we do drop prices, we drop them everywhere, setting a maximum national price cap for our customers, which means they all benefit from our low prices, regardless of where they live.”

The reduction follows the launch of the supermarket’s smartphone fuel price checker. Android phone users can now use the app to check out Asda’s fuel prices wherever they are. The service will be available for iPhone users soon.
