Supermarkets have announced that they are driving down the cost of diesel, giving some cheer to hard-pressed motorists.

Then Sainsbury’s announced a similar diesel reduction – also taking effect from Wednesday.
And thirdly, Asda said it was cutting its diesel by up to 2p a litre from Wednesday as well.
