BP reduces national price today + Smartfuel 10cpl discount

press release

MEDIA STATEMENT

3 November 2016

BP REDUCES NATIONAL PRICE

BP decreased the national price for its company-owned network today, removing 3 cents per litre from diesel and 2 cents per litre from petrol.

This latest decrease brings 91 Unleaded to 196.9 and Diesel to 126.9 per litre.

BP Communications Manager Shelley Brady says the price decrease comes as a result of a decline in refined product costs.

“The New Zealand dollar has also been trending favourably against the US dollar for most of this week and this has provided some additional cost relief,” she says.

“Because we purchase refined product in US dollars, any declines in the Kiwi dollar can quickly offset the cost improvements we are currently seeing so we are watching this closely.”

BP also announced a one-day deal across its national network today, offering 10 cents per litre off the pump price for AA and AA Smartfuel cardholders when they swipe their registered card.

“While we’re constantly looking at new ways to improve and evolve our offer for our customers, we’re really pleased to be able to deliver great loyalty discounts too – just like the one we’re offering today,” Brady says.

The deal is available on 3 November 2016, for up to 50 litres when a customer spends $40 or more on fuel.
