Three supermarkets cut diesel price
Morrisons, which has announced a cut in diesel prices, has 314 petrol stations across the UK
Supermarkets have announced that they are driving down the cost of diesel, giving some cheer to hard-pressed motorists.
First, Morrisons said its diesel would be reduced by up to 2p a litre from Wednesday morning.
Then Sainsbury's announced a similar diesel reduction - also taking effect from Wednesday.
And thirdly, Asda said it was cutting its diesel by up to 2p a litre from Wednesday as well.
Morrisons petrol director Mark Todd said: "A drop in wholesale prices combined with an improved exchange rate has provided us with an opportunity to pass a saving on to customers and continue to offer some of the lowest prices on the market."
Morrisons has 314 petrol stations across the UK.
Sainsbury's fuel buyer Chris Biggs said: "We're always looking at ways to help our customers save money which is why we're pleased to announce that from tomorrow we will be reducing diesel prices by up to 2p per litre across our 280 forecourts."
Andy Peake, Asda's petrol trading director, said: "From tomorrow, everybody filling up at an Asda fuel station will pay no more than 137.7p a litre for diesel."

If it wasn`t for over-greedy governments over-taxing this necessary commodity, you could probably reduce the price by £1 per litre ! (also the big con of selling `by the litre` leads us to believe when prices rise by 5p per litre they are actually rising 23p per Gallon ! what a con ! ) ROAD TAX IS MEANT TO BE SPENT ON ROADS, I VERY MUCH DOUBT IF MORE THAN 20% of it actually goes into maintaining the roads, the rest is grasped and goes into the coffers to Wast
