You must redeem your voucher at a Morrisons gas station by Sunday, March 6.
The reduced amount will be good news for regular Morrisons shoppers after Petrol prices hit a new record high over the weekend, reaching an average of 148.02pa litres across the UK.
This is according to the new AA figures, beating previous rate of 147.72p on Nov 20.

“With crypto restrictions now eased, customers are using their cars more often, and we believe this offer will help them further allocate their budgets.”

The increase was largely driven by a recovery in global demand as the pandemic eased, combined with production cuts by Russia and the Opec nations that pushed oil prices higher.
Oil prices rose more than 1% on Wednesday and experts fear rising tensions could push oil prices to $100 a barrel.
Brent crude rose $1.52, or 1.6%, to $94.81 a barrel. The price of US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil rose $1.59, or 1.7%, to $93.66.
Speaking about rising fuel costs earlier this week, AA spokesman Luke Bosdet said: “The cost of living crisis has risen another notch, tightening family spending as they face it. with other pressures from impending domestic energy costs and tax increases.”
