Shell’s Easter Bunny delivers more than an Easter egg…

Shell New Zealand today announced a three hour, 5 cents per litre price drop to ensure motorists get off to a very happy start to the Easter break

Shell is dropping prices of both grades of petrol and diesel by 5 cents per litre, from 4pm until 7pm today.

“This is our way of rewarding our loyal customers at a time of year when we know they are likely to be doing a bit of driving,” Shell New Zealand Retail Manager Rob Mahoney said.

“Shell initiated these types of one-off discounts in the New Zealand fuel retailing market, and we are pleased to be able to offer this price reduction today.

“Shell is committed to bringing New Zealanders the lowest possible fuel prices, and we will ensure we met that commitment in a variety of innovative ways - as well as continuing to be the leader in dropping the price of fuel when conditions allow.”

Mr Mahoney said Shell wished all motorists a happy Easter and urged everyone to drive safely over the long weekend.
