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!

Is there anyone out there who does auto garage door repairs? Ours is shut and won’t budge! Tried turning it off and on but no joy.
