Earlier this month, Boris Johnson announced that people in England are now able to travel to different areas for exercise in their cars.

He also confirmed that some people are able to return to work if they are unable to work from home, but has urged the British public not to use public transport where possible. For those with the luxury of owning a car, this means doing something a lot of us haven't done for several weeks - filling up fuel tanks.

So now, to make life cheaper for people making essential journeys and for those going to work, Asda has confirmed that petrol prices will remain below 100p per litre at every single petrol station during lockdown.

Asda told shoppers:"You’ll find that earlier this week we cut the price of unleaded fuel by 3p per litre and reduced diesel by 4p a litre.

"Our nationwide price cap means that motorists filing up at any of our petrol stations will pay no more than 99.7p per litre for unleaded and 104.7 per litre for diesel.

"Following the fall in oil prices, this fuel price cut means we can continue to support the nation during these unprecedented times and help lower the cost for people who need to be travelling to and from work and those who need to make essential journeys."

Asda isn't the only major UK supermarket pledging to keep fuel prices down during lockdown.

Morrisons has also reduced the price of its petrol to less than £1 per litre.

Earlier this month, the price of unleaded petrol dropped to 99.7p per litre, while diesel was reduced to 104p per litre.

A spokesman for the supermarket has said: "To say thank you to all key workers and other motorists making essential journeys, we're cutting the price of unleaded to 99.7p per litre and diesel to 104.7p per litre from tomorrow morning."
