BP Reduces National Petrol Price

BP Reduces National Petrol Price

BP removed three cents per litre from the price of petrol across its national company-owned network today.

This latest change brings unleaded 91 to 176.9 cents per litre.

BP Communications Manager Shelley Brady said refined product costs had decreased which enabled BP to pass

through the savings to petrol customers today.

“At the moment the NZ dollar is fairly flat, but we are monitoring this closely.

“Any drops in our dollar versus the US dollar can quickly offset cost of product improvements,” Brady said.

BP national prices as at 11 February:

91 Unleaded 176.9 cents per litre

95 Unleaded 185.9 cents per litre

Ultimate 98 193.9 cents per litre

Ultimate Diesel 95.9 cents per litre
