Petrol to fall below £1 a litre, experts predict

The average cost of a litre of petrol has dropped from 131.6p in July, when oil was $105 a barrel, to 112.6p a litre now with oil at $57 a barrel.

All four big retailers - Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Tesco - announced this week that they were knocking a further 2p off a litre. Asda will charge 107.7p a litre for petrol, its 13th cut to prices since the end of September.

Further drops in the world oil price are predicted before May's election, some analysts suggesting that it will fall to below $40 a barrel, which in turn will push petrol below £1 a litre. However prices are likely to rise again towards the end of the year.

Morgan Stanley is forecasting that prices could even briefly fall to as low as $35 a barrel before recovering.
