MEDIA STATEMENT

7 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 3 cents per litre from petrol.

This is the second decrease in under a week and brings BP’s national list price for 91 Unleaded to 193.9 cents per litre and Diesel to 123.9 cents per litre.

BP Communications Manager Shelley Brady says today’s price change comes as a result of a continued decrease in refined product costs.

“The New Zealand dollar has also continued to trend favourably against the US dollar since our last decrease,” she says.

“As a result, we’ve been able to take 6 cents per litre off diesel and 5 cents per litre off petrol over the past five days.”
