A small price rise in January but it took the price of 91 octane petrol up to the magic $2/litre mark. The increase reflects rising oil prices which reached US$100 a barrel, although the impact on the pump price was slightly offset by a stronger NZ$. The price we're paying now is the same as it was when commodity prices were last this high - in September 2008.
|Fuel||Price change||Cost per litre|
|Petrol (91 Octane)||2 cent increase||$2.00|
|Diesel||3 cent increase||$1.37|
