Asda has sparked a likely supermarket petrol price war by cutting its fuel prices.

From tomorrow the company is reducing the price of its petrol and its diesel by up to 2p a litre.

Asda customers will pay no more than 126.7p a litre for petrol, with diesel being 129.7p a litre - its lowest price since January 2011.

Asda said a strengthening pound against the dollar had been the key driver behind the cuts.

The company's petrol director Andy Peake added: "We're giving our customers and holidaymakers the opportunity to fill up their cars with some of the cheapest fuel prices in the market for years."
