Petrol and diesel prices as at 27 July 2018

After over 5 weeks without change (excepting the 11.5 cent per litre Auckland regional fuel tax on 1 July), petrol prices rose 3cpl at the end of July, along with diesel (diesel earlier rose 2cpl on 10 July). The increase is due to rising commodity prices, mostly because of a reduction in crude oil supply out of Saudi Arabia.  Overall the landed cost of petrol has risen nearly 4cpl since the last pump price change on 20 June, although the landed cost of diesel has only risen 3cpl in that time, so the last 3cpl increase was unwarranted. Although, as ever, not all service stations have raised prices yet, and many are selling at below the national price.
