January 2011 petrol and diesel prices


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
