Gull offering cheaper petrol in Petone – regular under $2 a litre

Press Release – Gull Petroleum
Gull opened its first site in Wellington today. The recently completed unmanned station in Petone will bring competitive pressure and price drops for local motorists.

The “Gull Effect”, a term coined by the New Zealand Automobile Association (AA), results in localised price drops across the board and delivers savings directly back to the community. Research shows that Kiwi consumers can benefit by a saving of around $100 per household, per year, as a result of the price drops.

The new site located at 30-32 Waione Street in Petone will deliver a late Christmas present for Wellington motorists with further discounts off Gull’s already low prices. Regular (91 octane) petrol will be selling for under $2 a litre, while the current national price is above $2.30.

Gull’s pricing analyst Crystal Feist says Gull is excited to open this much anticipated site in the Wellington region.

“The capital city has been on Gull’s wish list for a long time and has been much anticipated by our loyal customers. We are thrilled to be able to give Wellington citizens more choice for their fuel purchases and continue spreading the “Gull Effect” across the country,” says Feist.

    That’s the beauty of competition – you can choose where to buy your fuel, but remember Gull’s introductory prices will go up, and remember too that you don’t get anything off from loyalty cards etc as Gull doesn’t have one.
