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 at its company-owned sites. BP has decreased the price of petrol by 2 cents per litre across all grades of petrol, bringing the price at most BP owned service stations to:

91 Unleaded: $ 211.9 cents per litre
95 Petrol: $ 220.9 cents per litre
Ultimate 98: $ 228.9 cents per litre

“The slide in the cost of refined product on the international market continues,” BP Communications Manager, Jonty Mills said.

“As has been the trend lately, this is what’s driven another reduction at the pumps and it’s good news for motorists currently,” he added.

“It’s a very competitive marketplace and motorists have a lot of choice. There is a fair amount of market activity with the likes of our AA Smartfuel programme, where our customers can take advantage of current promotions in addition to this price reduction,” Mills said.
