WITH supermarkets cutting prices at the pumps, a new price war has commenced.

We reveal how much each supermarket has cut pump prices across the UK.

Asda was the first supermarket to slash the price of fuel – and it's now 12p cheaper than the national average.

Drivers are now paying an average of 174p for unleaded and 185p for diesel at the pumps — slashing £5 off a tank, according to the AA.

Last week the AA said that after wholesale petrol price falls it could knock £10 of the cost of filling up a tank.

Wholesale prices peaked at £1 a litre on June 1 but dropped below 80p two weeks ago.
