Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Tesco cut fuel by up to 2p per litre in fresh supermarket petrol price war
Updated: 7th January 2019,2:59 pm. ASDA has sparked another petrol price war with supermarkets announcing forthcoming unleaded and diesel price cuts. The other supermarkets don’t have a national cap. Asda says it’s the seventh fuel price drop it’s delivered since October 26, with unleaded falling by 14p a litre and diesel by 11p a litre. The motoring group accused the three supermarkets of failing to compete as closely on the price of unleaded as they usually do, which they said has added 3p a litre to the average fuel bill. Just last week furious MPs called for a fuel price watchdog to stop oil giants ripping off Brits. Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, and Tesco engaged in a price war at the end of last year, with the supermarkets all lowering prices on more than one occasion.
