Shell Leads 6 Cent Drop In Petrol And Diesel


Shell has again led a price decrease with a 6 cent drop in petrol and diesel prices, effective 10am this morning, Monday 3 November.

Shell fuel (at the majority of Shell outlets) is now priced at:

Ultra 91 $166.9 (down 6cpl)
V-Power $171.9 (down 6cpl)
Diesel $125.9 (down 6cpl)

Today's decrease is attributed to a stabilising of the Kiwi dollar and a continued decrease in the barrel price. That said, the market remains volatile and we commit to reviewing our prices daily so we can pass on the best available price to our customers.

Since 17 July 2008, petrol has dropped 52 cents per litre and diesel has dropped 66 cents per litre.
