Z Energy changes price strategy

7:27 am on 7 November 2014

Z Energy has changed its petrol pricing strategy to more aggressively match localised competitors.

The petrol station operator's net profit for the six months ended September fell 61 percent to 22 million.

However, the volume of Z's petrol sales fell 4 percent drop in the six months despite industry volumes rising 1 percent.
