BP raises fuel prices by 5c

By Steve Biddle, in , posted: 7-Mar-2007 17:59

BP have yet again lead the way by raising fuel prices for Kiwi motorists. The 5c per litre increase in the price of petrol and 4c for diesel occured earlier this afternoon.

Yet again BP have lead the way with a price increase like they have on almost all occasions over the past two years. Regardless of whether the price increase is justified or not BP's world class marketing department can yet again be congratulated for doing their best to exploit kiwi customers, it must be hard knowing that you lead the way in only one thing - ripping off your customers. I'd encourage every BP customer to thank their staff next time you're in a BP store. Unfortunately I won't be doing so as I wouldn't even buy a packet of gum from an organisation such as BP let alone buy my petrol there.
