Shock horror - BP raises fuel prices again and rips off Kiwi motorists!

By Steve Biddle, in , posted: 31-Mar-2008 17:32

Not content with Friday's 3c/litre diesel increase BP have put another hole in the wallet of Kiwi motorists crazy enough to support them by raising the price of both diesel and petrol by 2c/litre this afternoon.

On Friday they raised their diesel price by 3c/litre bring their price to 136.9 and this afternoon's increase now means they are selling diesel at 138.9 and regular 91 for 179.9 per litre.

No other fuel companies have yet matched Friday's increase or followed BP's increase this afternoon.

I just don't see why NZers still continue to support a company who prides itself with leading every single fuel increase. It's as though kiwi motorists love being ripped off!

I live next door to a Mobil station, the guy there told me once that if there is a price increase in the weekend, they hold off until monday before deciding what to do

You've finally convinced me, dude. I used to go there to get AA Rewards but I've now had enough.

Question should be why does AA support BP when they're supposed to be about the motorists!
