Asda has announced it is cutting petrol to 99.7ppl and diesel to 103.7ppl from Friday 11 December until Sunday 13 December. This is the second such promotion the supermarket has run in the last two weeks.

RAC Fuel Watch spokesman Simon Williams said: “Another promotional cut to enable motorists to buy petrol at under £1 will no doubt bring early Christmas cheer to many, but we would like to see this price being held for longer than three days with oil under $40 a barrel and the wholesale price of unleaded down.

“As we have said this week we believe that petrol for £1 or under will be a common sight in the run-up to the Christmas.”
