The impact of fuel spending on development

New Zealanders are driving less, and using less petrol than a decade ago, but the cost has gone from $3.8b to $7.8b a year.

We've examined how much disposable spending has “gone up in smoke” rather than into investments, savings or shop tills.

In the launch issue of our publication, Constructive Thinking, we take a look at how much Aucklanders spend in petrol stations: analysing which areas spend up big, and what influence demographic factors have.

We’ve mapped the average spending for Auckland suburbs, and interpreted the spend patterns to reveal some interesting trends. To access these insights, download the full publication below. It's free.
