Motorists in Huddersfield are paying less to fill up.
A slump in world oil prices and supermarkets slashing the cost of fuel on the forecourts means customers are now enjoying some of the lowest prices for years.
Sainsbury’s led the way – being the first to bring the price of unleaded down below 122p a litre. Its Shorehead store is selling unleaded at 121.9p a litre and diesel at 125.9p a litre.
Others have reduced their prices to compete – with Asda at Bradford Road selling unleaded for 120.7p and diesel at 124.7p.
Garages across the town are typically selling at between 120.9p to 123.59p for unleaded and 124.9p to 128p for diesel.
The latest Fuel Price Report from motoring group the AA puts the average price for unleaded in Yorkshire at 127.3p a litre with diesel at 131.2p.
The report said: “Falling oil prices have triggered a supermarket-price war, in particular Sainsbury’s switch to much lower pump prices across all of its forecourts. Although the countryside and small rural towns lag behind, average UK prices have dropped significantly.”
Nationally, unleaded prices are down by 2p from 129.2p a litre to 127.2p a litre. Diesel prices are down by 2.1p from 133.4p to 131.3p. The price difference between unleaded and diesel has shrunk slightly to about 4p a litre.
