Where to get Auckland and New Zealand's cheapest petrol

  • 31/07/2018

Gull CEO Dave Bodger has revealed where to get the cheapest petrol, one month after Auckland's fuel tax came into force.

The 11.5 cent a litre regional fuel tax came into effect on July 1 and several other councils are now considering one of their own.

Petrol station Gull usually offers prices significantly cheaper than competitors, which Mr Bodger says is down to being able to keep operating costs low.

Mr Bodger says two of the company's stations are able to boast the cheapest fuel in both Auckland and nationally.

As of Thursday, Gull Titirangi is selling petrol at $2.097 a litre and Gull Atiamuri, north of Taupo, is selling petrol at under two dollars a litre at $1.977.

Mr Bodger says they're seeing queues for the pumps even in a tiny village like Atiamuri. 

"There's not a lot of locals out there, but often there is a queue... on CCTV from the office we saw some big queues there," he said.

"There are a lot of people going up and down State Highway [1] on a regular basis, they've made that site their point of call."
