Has anybody also noticed how the AA always used to criticise fuel price increases until BP started being the main culprit? It's obviously pure coincidence that around the same time as this BP hopped into bed with the AA. In the old days George Fairbain from the AA would be out accusing the fuel companies of ripping off customers. Now that it's their partner you hear very little..
I'm reckon everybody should boycott BP, it least it would send Peter Griffiths a blunt message that consumers don't want to be ripped off...Looking at it from another perspective however maybe the fact that so many dumb consumers are happy to pay 8c per litlre more for fuel is all the proof they need that there is nothing wrong with their current strategy?

Confusing times. In Hamilton drove past BP today and advertised price $1.59. Thought wow another price increase, on way home drove past Mobil and advertised price $1.49.

Managed to get the 16c discount from PnS (Petone) last night, checked their 95 pump price and was 1.569 so figured $1.409/L was a damn good discount price for 95. I know it's BP fuel but that's a cheap as it's going to get.
