Hi neighbours,

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!

Farmers Returns Policy has tightened up.

Rhonda from Hastings Central

HI Folks,
Just letting you know that if you are like me and sometimes buy things at Farmers to 'check them at home and then take back what you don't actually want', Farmers in Hastings seem to have a new management policy. The docket still says 14 days to return as it always has.… View more
HI Folks,
Just letting you know that if you are like me and sometimes buy things at Farmers to 'check them at home and then take back what you don't actually want', Farmers in Hastings seem to have a new management policy. The docket still says 14 days to return as it always has. The part that has changed which is absolutely their right to do so is that the 'unwritten kindness' they have shown in the past no longer applies. I was a little surprised today to try and return something that was a little over the official return date to be told they are tightening up so I was unable to return it.
Absolutely understand, but as it is different to years worth of previous 'late returns by me' - thought I might let you know in case you need to know of the new 'tightening up'.
So pleased I have learnt my lesson on a single item that was on sale and not on a bag of things!! Phew!
This is not a grumble - I think the staff at Farmers are great!
