Motorists are to see a nationwide acceleration in fuel cost cuts over the weekend as supermarkets take up to 2p off a litre of petrol and diesel.
Wholesale costs have come down and driving organisations have recommended this should translate to reduced pump costs.
Tesco and Morrisons will be cutting their charges by 2p per litre on Friday, and Asda and Sainsbury's stated that they'd cut their charges by up to 2p per litre this Saturday .But drivers are being warned that costs will vary in several areas.
On Thursday, the average UK value for a litre of unleaded petrol was 118.83p and 120.88p for diesel, consistent with the latest figures from Experian Catalist.Ten days earlier, the national average for unleaded was 120.00p with diesel at 122.06p.
The oil price and wholesale costs fell sharply at the beginning of March, and driving organisations have been arguing that this should be feeding through to a 2p cut per litre, at the pumps.The RAC stated motorists may feel "aggrieved" that costs had not fallen sooner.
Asda said it had reduced prices twice in the last fortnight and had a national price cap to make sure motorists were treated fairly. Morrisons stated it had additionally made a second cut in the same time period.
Tesco is dropping petrol and diesel costs by 2p a litre over the course of Friday afternoon, followed by Sainsbury's at the weekend.
Luke Bosdet, of the AA, said that there was general concern that supposed supermarket fuel value wars failed to truly benefit all drivers across the country.
He claimed costs fell more in areas where there have been a spread of supermarkets situated near to one another. In other areas with less competition, similar cuts weren't as likely to be seen."We would urge motorists to look around to search out a better price. There are fuel price apps available to download which will help," he said.
