Morrisons has 340 petrol stations around the UK

The supermarket giant Morrisons has announced a new range of changes to its petrol stations over the coming weeks in the hopes of easing pressures on drivers.

With petrol and diesel prices constantly changing, Morrisons is aiming to help motorists with their finances by introducing a new fuel offer.

Anyone who visits a Morrisons supermarket and spends £35 will receive a coupon giving them five pence off every litre of fuel they purchase.

The fuel offer is running between Thursday, December 7, and Wednesday, December 13.

The offer is available to motorists who shop in a Morrisons supermarket or online, as well as those using the Click and Collect service.

Morrisons has almost 500 supermarkets and 340 filling stations around the UK which are involved with the deal.

Drivers can redeem the coupon at all Morrisons petrol stations, with the offer remaining valid until Wednesday, December 20.

However, drivers are being warned that the deal does exclude any franchised Morrisons Daily petrol stations.

Rachel Eyre, Chief Customer and Marketing Officer at Morrisons, praised the introduction of the new fuel price drop, adding that it will help motorists during the festive period.

She said: “With Christmas just around the corner this fuel offer aims to help household budgets go a little further.

“On top of the 5p per litre discount, More Card customers will still earn their usual five points for every litre of fuel which will help build up their points so they can be rewarded with Morrisons Fivers.”

The required £35 customer spend does include items including fuel, tobacco, lottery products, gift cards and postage stamps.

Earlier this year, the supermarket giant launched its More Card, with one of the perks seeing drivers receive five More Points for every litre of fuel they buy.

When a driver has reached 5,000 More Points, drivers receive a “Morrisons Fiver” that can be spent in-store and online.

According to the latest data from RAC Fuel Watch, the average price of petrol stands at 146.65p per litre, while diesel costs 153.95p.

Drivers are often encouraged to visit supermarkets to get cheaper fuel, with savings of around 4p per litre for petrol and three pence for diesel.

Morrisons frequently launches fuel offers for drivers to help cut costs amid the cost of living crisis, having done so a number of times this year.

The RAC recently blasted fuel retailers for not passing on the five pence cut on fuel duty, estimating that people are forced to overpay by £184million a month.

Simon Williams, RAC fuel spokesperson, said: “We reiterate our call to the biggest retailers to significantly cut their prices to mirror what’s happening with greatly reduced wholesale costs.”
