ASDA, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s have followed Tesco in cutting fuel by 2p per litre in a fresh supermarket petrol price war.

Tesco were the first to announce today they were shaving 2p per litre petrol and diesel off the cost of fuel at all of its petrol stations this afternoon.

Tesco’s network of 500 filling stations is the largest of all UK supermarkets and the drop means millions of motorists across the country can save ahead of Mother’s Day this weekend.

Peter Cattell, Fuel Director for Tesco said:

“We know many of our customers will be driving to spend time with their mothers this Sunday. So to provide a little extra help we’re cutting the cost of petrol and diesel by two pence per litre at all of our 500 filling stations.”

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said:

“Wholesale prices have come down by 2p a litre as a result of the cost of a barrel of oil reducing to the $50 mark for the last two weeks combined with a boost in the value of the pound against the dollar.”

“The last thing retailers need is for the public’s trust in their pricing policies to be undermined.

“We strongly urge other retailers – large and small – to follow suit and bring the price of petrol and diesel down around the country.”[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
