THE Asda supermarket chain is cutting petrol prices again from tomorrow.

Just six days after reducing petrol costs, its 150 filling stations - including Huddersfield - are bringing down the price of both unleaded and diesel to 78.9 pence a litre.

An Asda spokesman said: "We all had to pay higher prices when costs went up and we should all be paying less now."

But last week's action by the Organisation of Petrol Exporting Companies to bring down crude oil prices has not resulted in lower average petrol prices across the UK generally.

The Regional Fuel Price Report says unleaded petrol prices in West Yorkshire have actually risen by about half a penny per litre since the beginning of last week.

The cost of filling a car's tank with petrol in West Yorkshire has risen £3.80 since November.

The typical motorist is paying 5.3p a litre more than at the start of May.

The report said Sowerby Bridge was the most expensive place to buy petrol in West Yorkshire. It cost an average of 84.6 pence per litre there.

Keighley was the cheapest, at 81.2 pence a litre, it added.
