On The AM Show this week Judith Collins said that the fuel tax is going to target the poorest people in Auckland, usually those that live the furthest from the city and work shifts so rely on their cars to get to and from work.

Jenna Lynch talked to Carly Flynn about the fuel tax and how Labour has been left with an issue but needs the money to fix it, despite it going against the ‘no new taxes’ promise.

Jenni Keestra joins Carly with two great book recommendations from Paper Plus. For the grown up wanting to escape with a beautiful book, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart; the debut novel by Holly Ringland.

For the parents or the kids at heart Jenni recommends a book from NanoGirl, The Kitchen Science Cookbook by Dr Michelle Dickinson. It’s all about family science fun that you can do with you kids in your own home.

Traditional vegetables seem to be getting more expensive by the day, luckily Kelly Gibney is here to show that sometimes the most economical vegetables aren’t always the most glamorous. Kelly recommends cabbages and brussel sprouts as a staple veg to add to your meals to save your wallet.

Toyota's new selling regime - how it affects dealers

The change in Toyota’s new selling system means that the dealer becomes an agent not a franchisee. The showroom won't be carrying substantial stock, but instead cars will come from a warehouse. It’s a different way of doing things but it’s not entirely new - even in New Zealand in the 90s people could order cars from Daewoo over the phone and basically did away with showrooms.

Sandie Myhre joined Carly Flynn with all the latest on the changes in Toyota, plus where you can buy a car from a vending machine.
