Gull has brought some much-needed Christmas cheer to Kiwi motorists by slashing 20c of all fuel grades until lunchtime tomorrow.

The drop will see petrol at prices some punters never thought they'd see so soon after fuel skyrocketed to more than $2.30 a litre two months ago.

Gull spokesperson Rohan Mehta accepted it had been a "rollercoaster ride" with oil prices reaching record highs recently but said the company now wanted to pass on some savings.

"It's been a rollercoaster ride this year with oil prices reaching record highs. They're easing off just in time for Christmas, so we're passing on the savings.


"As Kiwi motorists look forward to a much-awaited Christmas break, Gull would love for their customers to have a little extra to spend on themselves, their family and friends."
