Gull Commits to Current Pricing

Gull Commits to Current Pricing
Pricing to remain at current pricing for the weekend

Auckland, 14 December 2010 – Gull has today committed to holding its current pricing until at least Monday 20 December, despite today’s increases by some of the oil giants.

“Gull is committed to delivering extra value at the pumps to Kiwi motorists, who will be out and about this weekend preparing for the festive season,” says Graham Stirk, Retail Business Manager of Gull New Zealand. “Families are gearing up for the festive break and to increase pump prices significantly would be a slap in the face.”

“We want to assess the market’s reaction to the economic data released today. Having a kneejerk reaction to this is not how Gull operates,” Stirk continues.

Motorists can also make use of their Foodtown, Countdown and Woolworths fuel dockets to further increase their savings at the pump.

Fuel prices at sites where Gull sets the price are:

Gull Regular Plus (91 Octane biofuel) $1.909
Gull Regular(91 octane) $1.919
Gull Force 10 (98 octane bio fuel) $2.049
Gull Diesel Max (Ultra low sulphur biofuel) $1.269
Gull Diesel (Ultra low sulphur diesel) $1.279

Prices will be discounted further at Gull’s increasing network of Drive-thru sites.

Gull New Zealand was founded in 1998 by the Rae family who saw the need and potential for an independent energy supplier. Adherence to a philosophy of low cost management, prudent investment decisions and a carefully planned marketing strategy commenced with the building of a state of the art terminal in Mount Maunganui in 1998. Tanks were relocated from Marsden Point by barge, a feat the opposition said was “impossible”.

Gull New Zealand made the first retail sales of petrol in 1999 and has grown the network to over 40 branded sites.

Gull has been a first mover in introducing innovative new products to the New Zealand energy market. These include low sulphur diesel bringing environmental benefits well ahead of the opposition, as well as New Zealand’s first biofuel, Gull Force 10 (a 10% ethanol mixed with premium gasoline giving higher octane and cleaner performance).

2010 saw Gull achieve another first and extend its environmental focus with release of Gull Diesel Max, a high quality bio diesel blend sourced from sustainable New Zealand vegetable oil.

Gull now has three service stations that only sell bio fuels which is another first for New Zealand.
