The petrol wars kick off again!

petrol_guage Once again, there's a price war at the petrol forecourts as Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's slug it out in a bid to win motorists' affections.

Sainsbury's and Asda will cut the price of diesel by up to 2p a litre and unleaded petrol by a penny from today.

Meanwhile, over at Tesco, they will cut unleaded petrol by 1p per litre, with diesel reducing by at least 1p a litre although some sites will get a 2p a litre price cut.

This all comes about after the price of Brent crude oil fell, which means the supermarkets can pass on some savings to you car-havers. They'll also be hoping you buy your shopping from them too, rather than buggering off to Lidl and Aldi.

Asda's petrol trading director Andy Peake, who is an incredibly dynamic, rollercoaster of a man, said: "We're giving drivers the opportunity to fill up their cars with some of the cheapest fuel prices in the market for years."

"No matter where customers live they will benefit from the same fuel price with our national price cap."

    Ive lived in Dubai for 3 years now, where it only costs me around 9 quid to fill up my Ford Focus. They were going to raise the prices so I would have had to pay around 10quid to fill up, but the nationals went ape shit and the authorities changed their minds. If people really want to see lower fuel prices then do something about it instead of moaning one day and then driving to the petrol station to pay top dollar the next. If you carry on paying, nothing will change.

What do you think?
