Petrol has hit a new high price mark, a move that the Automobile Association is condemning as unjustified.

The four main suppliers have lifted their prices by 3c - to $2.22 a litre for 91-octane fuel - leaving only industry minnow Gull holding out for now.

Diesel remains unchanged at $1.64 at most city pumps.

That follows about six weeks in which prices stayed at the same level as the previous record of $2.19 - reached in 2008 after hurricane damage to United States oil fields.
