BP Reduces National Price

BP Reduces National Price

BP decreased national prices for its company-owned network today, removing three cents per litre from diesel and three cents per litre from petrol.

BP Communications Manager Shelley Brady says this is the third decrease in under a week and brings BP’s national list price for 91 unleaded to 190.9 cents per litre and diesel to 120.9 cents per litre.

“We have seen a continued decrease in refined product costs coupled with a strengthening New Zealand dollar against the US, so we’ve been able to pass through another reduction today,” she says.

“We’ve now taken 9 cents per litre off diesel and 8 cents per litre off petrol since Thursday last week.”

AA Smartfuel cardholders and AA members can benefit even further with their 6 cents per litre everyday discount.
