ASDA Petrol Prices – Saving you money on petrol today
ASDA supermarket was formed in the 1920’s by a group of dairy farmers, it was called Hindells Dairies. Its first supermarket was operating under the name of Queens and opened in Castleford in the early 1960’s. By 1965 it had merged with Associated Dairies, this creating the brand we know today as ASDA. Like all supermarkets, ASDA has diversified into many areas offering different products and services. In 1999 ASDA was purchased by the Wal-Mart group for £6.7 billion. After the takeover ASDA kept it’s roots in Yorkshire by building a new headquarters. In 2009 after some restructuring, Wal-Mart sold ASDA to one of its own subsidiaries, Corinth services Ltd and this ensured it remained under Wal-Mart control.
ASDA filling stations
ASDA operates 160 filling stations across the country. Their fillings stations are conveniently located at the major store sites making it quick and convenient to fill up. ASDA filling stations are a no frills affair, they do not have shops at the filling stations and all of the fuel has to be purchased at the pump. Whilst this speeds things up because you are not waiting for someone to do their weekly shop whilst buying fuel it means you can’t pay in cash. All stations provide disposable gloves at the pumps, there are air and water filling services are also located on the forecourt. As for the future of ASDA filling stations it would seem sensible to assume that they will be offering more refueling options as the demand for electric and hydrogen options gathers pace. se the map below to find Asda petrol stations and fuel prices, or use their own store locator to find all Asda supermarkets.

ASDA and the fuel price war
The current petrol price hikes have meant that competition between all of the major supermarkets and fuel retailers has been fierce; ASDA has been leading the way by offering some of the cheapest petrol at the pumps.
ASDA does not offer a reward scheme or offer incentives for using its filing stations, but choose to keep it simple by offering the most competitive prices. However if you have an ASDA reward credit card you can earn reward points with additional incentives for purchasing ASDA fuel.
ASDA currently sells the following fuel types.
Yes, thats correct, they only sell standard diesel and standard unleaded fuel!
