Petrol Prices in Perth.

Who is ripping off who ?
Brisbane ULP, today is 74.9 to 79,9 for ULP. No state fuel tax.
Add 10c litre state rip off fuel tax , makes it 84.9 to 89.9c a litre.
So, why is Perth paying 93.9 to 98.9c a litre.
Who is getting the extra 4c to 9c a litre extra ?
Govt, Fuel Watch and RAC are unable to give an answer.
This would also apply to the other states also..So, who is getting away with this ripp off. ??

Re: Petrol Prices in Perth.

Shot up to 98.9 here in adelaide

Never usually this high, most times 95 is as high as it gets, used to get down to about 80c but thats now changed back to 88c... miss the good QLD prices

I would say they are trying to blam the Santos plant blowing up the other night, im sure that would have something to do with it in some way or another

Re: Petrol Prices in Perth.

Its a big joke on us all we can do is fill up when its cheap and hopefully make it thru the week intill its cheap again. they call it discounting but the cheap price is baseline and when they they put it up its just extra revenue

Last night 2 servo's within a couple of kays were 84.7 and 96.9 - SNAFU!

I'd thought of starting a thread "What lengths do you go to for cheap petrol?", I did a 10km round trip to go back to the cheaper one. Made sense though - 10km/$1 fuel to save $12.
