BP wishes Kiwi's a Happy Easter and raises Diesel by 5c per litre

The lovely folks over at BP have done it again - they've lead the way today by raising Diesel by 5c per litre which now makes them 6c per litre more than every other player in the fuel industry (since they were 1c more up until today).

I just don't know why people continue to support a company who pride themselves in leading the way in petrol price increases having now lead every fuel increase in NZ for the past 17 months.

Avoid getting ripped off this Easter. Don't visit BP.

UPDATE: 20th March

BP have now been forced to drop their diesel back to 133.9 after the market didn't move with them and they were left hung out to dry. This is still a 1c premium over all the other major retailers who are still selling diesel at 132.9
