Up until ten days ago we had a small Z and a large Caltex petrol station in little olde Paihia. Then we received a note in the mail that Z was closing down ... nothing too suprising about that as Z now owns Caltex and it doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense competing against yourself.
But, as they say, wait, there's more. Seven days after Z closed down the station reopened under the Waitomo Petroleum brand ... a family owned Kiwi Company. They are marketing their petrol at 1.69.9 per litre regular which forced Caltex to match while just 20k away in Keri2 Caltex and BP are charging $1.85.9 for the same.
