Today is “Black Friday,” a retail event that started off in the US but has now well and truly spread to this side of the pond. Bargains are everywhere for those willing to brave the crowds, and we’re pleased to be able to announce that those bargains have spread to the petrol forecourt – or at least they have if you head to your local Asda.

As reported by The Sun, Asda has launched a three-day petrol promotion that lasts until midnight this Sunday. The supermarket chain is selling unleaded for 99.7 pence per litre, and diesel at 103.7 pence per litre.

This isn’t the first time this week we’ve been able to report on fuel at this price level. Morrisons launched a promotion earlier in the week too, as per a recent article, but their offer requires you to spend £40 or more in store. Asda’s equivalent comes with no such strings attached.

It’s important to remember that these are both time-limited offers; Asda’s is just for this weekend, and the Morrisons offer ends December 6th. However, we are hopeful that we will see other such promotions between now and Christmas.

In the meantime, now is undoubtedly a good time to go and fill up if you’re within reach of one of these forecourts. Enjoy it while it lasts!
