This brings the price of a litre of 91 octane unleaded to 182.9 per litre, a new record for New Zealand. Diesel has risen to 141.9 however due to BP having maintained a 2c per litre premium over all other chains for diesel for at least the last month this means their diesel is now 5c per litre more than all other competitors which makes that standard 4c fuel docket from New World a waste of time.
As of mid afternoon no other fuel companies have yet announced that they will be following suit.

I must admit that since one of your earlier posts about this (a good few months ago) I switched my allegiance to Shell and haven't looked back! We do a lot more of our gracery shopping at Woolworths now because of this too (Shell petrol dockets)...
Boo to you BP

yup same here..i dont do BP fuel anymore..not 12 months and i have noticed most of the patrons at my local BP station are predominanlty FUEL CARD users..i.e company cars so they HAVE to use BP fuel or simply stuck with the fuelcards.( i only go in for the BEAN COFFEE)
Anywho..the more people that boycott BP the more they will feel it..perhaps another round of anti BP or boycot BP emails to remind everyone?

Good to see your persistence in blogging this continuing scam. I noticed a supermarket was boasting 10c fuel discounts at ... BP.. funny that.

Were they leaders or followers? On radio news Caltex and Shell were quoted as being the first with no comment yet from the other companies.
Business Report for Wednesday, April 9, 2008
It just keeps getting more expensive at the pump.
Caltex has hiked the price of petrol by three cents a litre and diesel by five cents.
91 is now at 183.9c a litre with 95 is at 188.9.
Diesel is 141c a litre.
The price rise comes as crude oil prices fall, ending a volatile week which saw it creep up eight percent. It is trading at around $US108 a barrel.

As an American, I have to wonder why N.Z. is following Liberalism down the yellow brick road when it has destroyed every country infected by it
