ASDA has announced today that from Thursday it is cutting an additional up to 2p a litre from the price of both unleaded and diesel.
The move from Asda is the third price cut in the last three weeks, meaning its fuel prices have cumulatively dropped by up to 6p per litre.
From Thursday drivers filling up at any of Asda’s 196 forecourts nationwide, including Coleraine - will pay no more than 134.7 pence per litre for unleaded and 139.7 pence per litre for diesel. This marks the first time since late February that diesel falls below the 140p per litre mark.
An ease in global oil prices coupled with the retailer’s on-going commitment to help lower the cost of living will be good news for hard pressed motorists, with the cost of fuel hitting record highs in recent months.
