^ surprised that wasn't bigger news - a huge reduction, and a big loss to the supermarket - make it up in profits off the groceries as profits on petrol per litre are I think less than 10c.
No loss at all to any supermarket this kind of incentive. They make money. They're very clever. All they do is increase the cost of maybe 100 essential buy items around the store by 1, 2, 5 cents or so (eg bread, milk, toilet role etc) - a minuscule amount that no-one notices and hey presto everyone buys these items anyway so they make their money back easily and then some.

how much is fuel in nz now?
Wellington is around $2.20 standard unleaded, $2.25 for the more potent stuff & diesel around $1.57 per litre but diesel owners pay a diesel levy tax over and above the normal annual road tax :-(
