My Farmlands card gets me 11c a litre off at Z but that is only helpful if I am somewhere that there is a Z - nearest is a 75km round trip...so the 11c saving evaporates just going to get it!

 

My BP card gets me 9 cents off pump price.

BP are a special case for some reason, And not sure how they do it. But same for the kiwifuels card (no, still not got the average discount details of family member who has one yet..)

 

The discount for BP is applied at time of billing, and only off the 'national price' not pump price. So may not be discounted at all in some cases depending on region. Whereas the other options are normally an instant pump-price drop

These still current Christchurch 230.9 prices are actually a record high, according to a Stuff article dated May 18 2018 written by Liz McDonald.   In that article she mentions 229.9.  So there we are.   I wonder what will happen over Easter with the prices.

So it's pretty much appears Christchurch is being used as a piñata for cash to subsidise profit elsewhere?

Not sure what the record was/is for higher octane fuels, but on Saturday in Pukekohe their Ultimate 98 was 259.4 a litre.

I happily accepted the SmartFuel discount of 46c off per litre (combining the usual AA SmartFuel 6c and 40c from Countdown), but would prefer that prices were lower to start with!




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

NPD in Christchurch on Stanmore Rd was 2.08 per liter this morning. Self service. no frills, but significantly cheaper than the rest.

Damn, Christchurch can't catch a break....

 

And I shudder to think what 98 prices are like, I thought $2.47 a liter (before discounts) here was bad. Seems to be sitting around $2.08 for 91 in Palmerston North right meow.

It was 2.11 a few days ago when I drove past a petrol station in East Auckland. I use my AA discount card and get notified when the local Caltex or BP have 10 c off per litre - that' when I go fill up

We're definitely moving back towards heavy subsidisation of petrol by those unfortunate enough to be paying the "national price". Most petrol in Auckland is now being sold for under the national price, and even those that are over the national price (such as the Z and Caltex at the airport which have traditionally seen no discounting) are not 11c more than the national price like they should be.
