Petrol stations across Calderdale could be set to reduce their prices in reaction to Asda cutting theirs for a third time in as many weeks.

From today (Friday) drivers using Asda forecourts across the UK will pay no more than 128.7ppl on unleaded and 135.7ppl on diesel in another new round of price cuts. Fuel at Asda is now the lowest price it has been this year.

The nearest Asda filling stations to Calderdale are at Bradley in Huddersfield or Dudley Hill in Bradford.

Whilst Asda remains the only supermarket to have a national price cap when it cuts the price of fuel, other fuel retailers are charging some drivers up to 6 pence per litre difference across their sites.

Andy Peake, Asda’s Petrol Trading Director said: “Families across Britain are crying out for help when it comes to managing their budgets and we know every fuel reduction makes a real difference. Our prices are the lowest they have been all year and our national price cap on fuel benefits everyone across the country, meaning that no-one filling up at Asda is forced to pay a premium for their fuel because of where they live.
