Retail fuel margins are now 19p a litre, Mr said. Williams, up 12 pence from its long-term average.

“Petrol should really be selling at 153p a liter and diesel at 175p,” he said.

Mr Williams said independent retailers, which had traditionally been much more expensive than their supermarket rivals, were now often selling at lower prices.

Larger retailers tend to buy their gasoline further in advance, which means wholesale price changes are passed on to consumers a bit more slowly, an industry source said.

Andrew Opie of the British Retail Consortium said: “Retailers understand the cost pressures motorists face and will do everything they can to offer the best value for money in their own backyards, reduce costs as they move through the supply chain.”

An Asda spokesman said: “Asda always offers motorists the best value at the pumps. Our prices have dropped by 25p per liter of petrol and 18p per liter of diesel since the start of July. In addition, today’s petrol prices are 2p per liter below the UK average and diesel 3ppl.’

Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons have been contacted for comment.

Earlier this year, former Prime Minister Boris Johnson has declared war on petrol stations who cannot stand the government’s cut in fuel duty, pledging to name and shame those who refuse to lower their prices.

Mr Johnson expressed fury that a 5p per liter cut in fuel duty announced in March had failed to affect prices at the pumps, prompting an investigation by the competition regulator.
