BP raises fuel prices. Unsuspecting Kiwi customers ripped off.

By Steve Biddle, in , posted: 21-May-2007 16:36

Yet again the wonderful folks at BP have lead the way in ripping off Kiwi's by raising their fuel prices by 8c per litre this afternoon.

Fuel prices dropped by 5c per litre of Friday from 157.9 for a litre of 91 to 152.9 over the weekend.

A completely unscientific survey on my way home today (driving past 9 petrol stations) indicates that while BP have raised their price to 160.9 all other companies have remained at 152.9

Don't support these idiots.  I wouldn't even buy a packet of chewing gum from them. They're the PPI (petrol price increase) leaders in the New Zealand marketplace.

UPDATE @ 22:00 Shell have moved their price to 157.9 which is the same as it was on Friday. My money is on BP dropping their price in the morning to match that and pretending this never happened. The problem is customers are a lot smarter than you think.
