RAC welcomes 2p supermarket petrol price cut

Asda and Sainsbury today began a petrol price reduction by cutting 2p a litre off petrol prices.

RAC technical director David Bizley said: “Certainly, this price cut will be widely welcomed by UK motorists and it is encouraging to see that the drop in the wholesale price of fuel is being passed on

“Nonetheless, it is difficult to underestimate the impact that the UK’s high fuel prices are having on us as individuals – our research has shown that almost half of motorists would avoid promotion or a new job that involves more driving, and a quarter believe prices negatively affect their working life. The RAC will continue to fight the motorist’s corner on this front and campaign for greater price transparency.”
