More good news for motorists
BP continues to drop petrol and diesel prices – today by three cents a litre at its company owned service stations effectively immediately.

BP will drop its wholesale price to independent retailers (who set their own prices) at midnight tonight.

Prices will vary between 89 and 92 cents for Unleaded 91 petrol, 94 - 97 cents for Unleaded Premium, and about 64 cents for diesel.

Parts of the country already enjoying discount prices will not be affected by today’s decrease.

Since September 25, BP has dropped petrol prices by 21 cents, and diesel 17 cents.

BP Managing Director Peter Griffiths said BP’s prices would always be as good as or better than its competitors.

“That is why we hold the number one spot in New Zealand.”
