Asda cuts fuel prices after retailers accused of overcharging
Last updated: 17 October 2019 - 7.50am. Asda is to cut its fuel prices amid claims that retailers are failing to pass on reduced wholesale costs. That means drivers using an Asda filling station will pay no more than 121.7p per litre for petrol and 125.7p per litre for diesel. Asda senior fuel buyer Dave Tyrer said: “With wholesale costs falling and half-term just around the corner, we’re pleased to be able lower the cost of fuel and pass these savings on to our customers.”. Oil has been trading at around 60 US dollars a barrel since the beginning of the month, falling at one point to 58 US dollars. “For some reason, in the last year or so our biggest retailers haven’t been as transparent with their pricing as they have been in the past, which means motorists all over the country lose out as a result of them taking more margin than they have previously.”.
