ASDA and Morrisons have announced a petrol price cut from tomorrow.

Motorists filling up from Tuesday at ASDA in Queensferry will pay no more than 114.7p per litre on unleaded and 116.7p per litre on diesel. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The price drop follows a fall in wholesale fuel prices over the last week. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Asda’s Head of Petrol Trading Dave Tyrer said: “Today’s latest move shows that Asda is once again leading the way in reducing the price at the pumps to help the millions of motorists across the UK.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Simon Williams from the RAC added: “This is the perfect spring gift for motorists to go with longer days and warmer weather. No doubt other retailers will follow suit and we will see prices on every forecourt come down. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“This should now help to bring prices down on every forecourt from the 120p average for unleaded and 122p for diesel.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Morrisons was the first supermarket to follow ASDA’s move, It said it would match the 2p price drop, others are expected to follow. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
