Yep, known that for a long time

kevymtnz, Dec 28, 9:58am
should be as low as $1.70 but is far from it

Nothing new there

I got an idea, don't buy it. That'll teach them (o:

casualobserver, Dec 28, 10:42am
Wow. Insightful. Something costs different here than it does in another country. That's never happened before. Amazing stuff.

phillip.weston, Dec 28, 12:57pm
be glad it doesn't cost so much more, like it does in the UK and Europe.

phillip.weston, Dec 28, 12:58pm
also Australia is being ripped off compared to the USA. It's less than $2/gal there right now.

Australia uses more petrol than NZ. Size of the market affects price.

How did you calculate that the average price of 91 octane petrol in New zealand. $1.91 is the most expensive I have seen over the last week and the lowest is $1.769

lots of NZrs get a discount of around 10-15 cents a litre depending what organisation you belong to

zetec, just run your car on 95/98 and solve the problem with better performance

its the goverment that taxs the crap out of it . in the u.s it works out $1 to $1.20 nz as my uncle was telling me

1.74 I paid in Auckland on boxing day

gem208, Dec 28, 10:20pm
Just paid $1.08 this morning here in oz.

franc123, Dec 28, 10:32pm
That is well below the current national average.

bumfacingdown, Dec 28, 10:43pm
So we start 67.1 cents for a litre and then add 5% more for Grab Snatch and Take and the gap starts to not look as great.

gem208, Dec 28, 11:05pm
Here's current prices in nthn beaches sydney area. Plus also there can be fuel discount offers to take more off. Cheapest right now in this area shows a couple of petrol stations have $1.09 and up to $1.15

For me it was $1.12 at pump and I had a 4c discount voucher.

Raw price of the oil is small part of the cost . It still has to be refined & distributed & retailed those costs dont go down. , nor does Govt excise taxes . Aus has some oil of its own too , plus a market 10 times bigger than NZ

tahnasha, Dec 29, 2:07am
Saw it for $1.12 a couple of days ago in the Gold Coast. Today it's between $1.14-$1.20 litre.

On the matter of discounting, I recently read that about 45% of all petrol sold in Oz is sold at below the pump price. Due to people with petrol cards / accounts, supermarket vouchers etc. I would think that it would be much the same here.

franc123, Dec 29, 9:00pm
Which isn't 1.08 is it! Like I said that is a below average price.

Not really worried about the price of 91. The lawnmower, weedeater and chainsaw don't use much
