BP leads national price reduction at the pumps


BP has led a two cents per litre national price decrease on all grades of fuel at its company-owned stores this morning.

BP Communications Manager Shelley Brady said the New Zealand dollar had strengthened over a number of days, enabling the company to reduce prices nationally.

“We understand the impact petrol prices have on our customers, so we are happy to be able to pass through today’s decrease.

“Volatility still exists in the market – particularly in terms of cost of product and exchange rates, so we are continuing to monitor this closely.

“We don’t know what shape the market will take in future, but we will always pass on savings to our customers whenever we can,” she said.

National board prices as at 13 October 2015:

91 Unleaded 201.9 cents per litre

95 Unleaded 210.9 cents per litre

Ultimate 98 218.9 cents per litre

Ultimate Diesel 123.9 cents per litre
