Checked the price driving thru Sunbury on the weekend, 48.9, so filled up in Bendigo for 37.9, but it's crazy, even in bendigo price ranges from 37.9 to 52.9.

Re: melb: gas over weekend and today

shell etc have 54.9 and anyone opposite are matching. but 7-11 etc are abit more decnt with 45.9

a full tank a gas (55L=300-350km's) get me just under wat i get off a full tank of fuel (65L=350-450*IF IM LUKY over 400), so either way doesnt really bother me lol

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!

Re: melb: gas over weekend and today

What amazes me even more is the "jump"

37.5 in the morning at the SHELL servo on the way to work..............57 on the way home for lunch. 20c rise in 3 hours. Talk about milk money.

That's it ......I'm buying a servo
