Petrol prices in New Zealand hit an all-time high last week as a litre went for $3.15 in Auckland.
The previous record was $3.09 for a litre of 91 petrol.
Currently, in Hamilton fuel costs anywhere from $2.64 to $3.04 a litre – a 40 cent difference across companies.
Wellington is not far behind with a difference of 30 cents, followed by Christchurch, which differs by 25 cents.
Currently, the national average is $2.84 a litre.
In March, the government scrapped fuel taxes for three months to help people cope with the rising cost of living when petrol prices rose above $3 per litre.
