Leading oil companies have dropped the price of petrol and diesel from this afternoon.

The price of petrol has been cut by four cents making 91-octane $1.63.9 a litre, and 95-octane $1.69.9 a litre.

Diesel was down by three cents to $1.07.9 a litre.

A Shell spokeswoman said the price drop was due to a "welcoming decrease in the cost of refined petroleum".
