Britain’s leading supermarket fuel retailers look to be on course for a price war on fuel and some experts predict that prices may drop to below £1 per litre.
Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Morrisons all reduced fuel cost by 2p a litre over the past weekend. Asda have diesel at a guaranteed 106.7p per litre, which is cheaper than unleaded which will cost no more than 109.7p nationwide.

With the strong pound and falling oil prices, this is all great news for the British motorist.
