How does the current cost of fuel affect you?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi Waikato,

What's the highest price per litre of fuel you've paid for recently? Petrol prices are skyrocketing around the country, with some Kiwi motorists shelling out more than $3 a litre for fuel!

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern claims that New Zealanders are being "fleeced" at the pump, but petrol companies are pushing back on those claims.

The Government plans to rush through changes to an act, which will allow a watchdog to investigate the margins on fuel. Click here to read more about how your rising fuel taxes will be spent.

So what are your thoughts on the current price of fuel? Can you and your family afford it? Do you think the current prices need to be investigated? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below!

A Doll’s House

Performing Arts Network of NZ

Tour-Makers and Twist Productions present A Doll’s House, by Emily Perkins, based on Ibsen’s original, directed by Katherine McRae.

Cleverly exposing the dynamics within a marriage, the New Zealand adaptation of the classic play by Norway's Henrik Ibsen, A Doll’s House, is set to make its Hamilton debut – playing for one night only at Clarence Street Theatre on Saturday 14th September.

Celebrated New Zealand writer Emily Perkins has created a masterpiece in her first work for the stage, exploring the social straitjackets we find ourselves in, and revealing how much – or how little – has changed since the Ibsen original premiered in 1879, with both being acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.

This production stars Sophie Hambleton, best known for her role as Carol O’Driscoll in TV3’s Westside.
