BP leads the way yet again - raising their fuel by 3c litre in New Zealand

Continuing on with their unbeaten 17 month record of having lead every fuel price rise in New Zealand BP today raised their prices again by 3c per litre across all products. Not content with being classed as a follower, BP's strategy of being leaders in the field when it comes to fuel price increases continues unabated!

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.
