Paying more getting less

Petrol in Palmerston North on Tuesday cost $2.11 a litre.

In Kurow on Wednesday it was $2.30.

That’s hard to stomach when the four-lane highway that was planned for the very busy Christchurch to Ashburton section of State Highway 1 has been canned.

A little bit of the extra we’re paying is a result of higher prices for crude oil and the lower New Zealand dollar.

A lot of it is tax.

We’re paying more and getting less.
