Petrol prices fall with temperatures this weekend

Two leading supermarkets have cut their petrol prices in a bid to keep hard-pressed motorists moving as this weekend's predicted cold snap looms.

Both Asda and Tesco have cut prices with Asda introducing a 2p per litre reduction, guaranteeing motorists petrol at a maximum of 129.7p per litre for unleaded and 137.7p per litre for diesel. Tesco have responded with cuts of up to 3p per litre on their forecourts.
