    Our fuel problem

    Ok if this is getting to far into politics pull the thread we all have a problem and i think if we all stand together we may be able to change things the idea of boycotting gas stations dor one day wont work because youll just buy fuel the day before or after i think we need to boycot one brand untill they lower their prices under the others then move on to the next one untill we get down to an accecptable level id say start with z they are usually the most expencive and being kiwi owned should look after us theres a lot of us out there in this comunity and we may be able to make a change if we stand together on this

    Stop whinging you lot on the main two islands, we are sitting on $3.09 for 91 octane.... Lots of short runs on the island leads to one of our vehicles getting 4.5km/l

    Its a great idea, Pick one and boycott them for at least a week. It will hurt one brand big time and also serve as an example to the others. The same tactic would work on supermarkets and a certain green outdoors chain as well.

    Don't agree - its the Government Taxes that need trimming to take a bit of the pain away - get rid of all the silly discount gimmicks etc too
    Regulate - yes go back to regulation - Robert "McGarvie" Muldoon days
    that should close the Tread down :-)

    NZ'ers need to start voting with our wallets, we get ripped off for just about every thing. Our cost of living compared with wages is ridiculous. I agree tax should come down as well. 5.6 billion surplus just means the assholes have over taxed us.

    Please keep clear of steering this into a shit fight about the government and focus on what we can do about the fuel prices their turn will come at election time but thats a different topic

    How many flavours of petrol do we have? BP Mobil Caltex Gull Z and that's not counting the small indepents like Waitomo or GAS. If we bought one it's not like we're going to miss out.
