BP Leads Further Price Reduction at the Pumps

BP Leads Further Price Reduction at the Pumps


BP has this morning led a further national price reduction on petrol and diesel at its company owned sites. BP has decreased the price of petrol and diesel by 2 cents per litre, bringing the price at most BP owned service stations to:

91 Unleaded $ 215.9 cents per litre
Ultimate Diesel $ 146.9 cents per litre
Diesel $ 145.9 cents per litre


“The continued decline in cost of product on the international market is what’s driving these latest reductions at the pump,” BP Communications Manager, Jonty Mills said.

“This is the third price drop this week by BP, totaling 6 cents per litre and we’re pleased to be passing on the benefits to our customer as quickly as possible,” he added

“The softening NZ dollar isn’t providing much assistance and it’s crystal ball type stuff in relation to what may happen going forward. But for now, it’s positive news for Kiwi motorists,” Mills said.
