Supermarkets across the borough have launched into a price war at the petrol pumps, with Asda being the latest to cut the cost of fuel.
The supermarket giant – which has a superstore in Arnold – announced plans to slash the price of petrol by up to 3p a litre.
Drivers who fill up with diesel will save up to 2p a litre.
The move means that drivers won’t pay more than 124.7p per litre for petrol and 127.7p per litre on diesel.
Morrisons, which has a large store at Netherfield, also confirmed it will be cutting the cost of unleaded and diesel by 3p and 2p per litre today (14) at all its filing stations across the UK.
Rival Sainsbury’s, which has a superstore in Arnold, also slashed their pump prices at all of its forecourts,
The savings are being passed on to motorists by the supermarkets after the price of oil fell back to $76 a barrel.
Asda boss Roger Burnley said: “We know that the cost of living is centre of mind for our customers and we will always do whatever we can to reduce that burden.
“Customers can trust us to lead the way when it comes to lowering the price of fuel and putting cash back in their pocket.”
