Drivers in Forfar are set to benefit from the ‘Asda effect’ on petrol prices as long serving colleagues open the store’s brand new forecourt on Friday.

The new outlet will bring the cheapest petrol and diesel prices to the area.

Two colleagues from the Forfar store, with over 54 years’ service, will perform the ribbon cutting duties to declare the forecourt open for business. Asda Forfar’s prices will open at 126.7 ppl for unleaded and 134.7 ppl for diesel, a saving of more than 6.7 ppl respectively over the average prices of 133.40 ppl for unleaded and 138.90 ppl for diesel in the area.

The supermarket remains the only fuel retailer to have a national fuel price cap and continues to urge others to follow its lead, delivering fairer prices across Forfar and the surrounding areas as well as the whole of the UK, not just in places where an Asda keeps prices down.

Robert Hallyburton, Forfar store manager said: “It’s great news for drivers that an Asda forecourt has arrived in the town to bring the lowest price fuel to the people of Forfar. We just want to help people save as much money as they can, whether it’s on their shopping or their petrol so we’re extremely pleased to see our new forecourt finally open and benefitting the community.”
