RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “A 2p a litre supermarket cut in the price of petrol and diesel from a major supermarket is of course good news for motorists, it’s just a shame it didn’t come sooner.
“We wonder how long motorists would have had to wait for a decent forecourt cut had the RAC not drawn attention to the fact that wholesale fuel costs had reduced substantially in the last month.
“This price cut takes us back to a supermarket price that was last seen in early May. Hopefully other supermarkets will follow suit which will drive prices down across the country. If that happens we should see the average price of both petrol and diesel drop from around 112p a litre to 110p.”
