Drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 279 fillings stations across the country will only pay 97.7ppl for diesel from Friday, January 22.
The two pence per litre cut sends diesel to its lowest price for six years.
Meanwhile, unleaded remains at 99.7ppl across the UK at Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.
And now one of the big four has cut it’s fuel price, it is the trend that the other three will follow suit shortly.
Andy Peake, Asda’s Senior Petrol Director said, “We’re delighted to be the first retailer to take diesel to its lowest price level in over six years.
“This latest announcement shows that we’re committed to being the driving force behind lowering fuel prices across the UK regardless of where you live.”
