Off Topic. Increase Fuel Prices

Post  Wombat on Wed May 23, 2018 4:31 pm

I just back from buying diesel to put into my Perjero and the cost of fuel right now has skyrocketed up to $1.55.9c per Lt for diesel and petrol is not far behind. Have we just gone into World War 3 and someone forgot to tell us. This price is in Maryborough and looking on Petrol Spy web site, www.petrolspy.com.au/map/ it looks like it is happening all over Vic. I'm planning to go over to the West in about 8 weeks. But if the fuel prices keep going up I think I may forget about it for this year. "NOT HAPPY JANE" V41

Wombat, where we are in Adelaide diesel has been $1.58 a liter for few weeks and unleaded nearly same price. This is what happens when port stanvac is no more and fuel has to be imported. (And australian supply at all time low) And OTR (on the run) had been taking over and building everywhere and now seems to have a very large monopoly. I refuse to suport them. Travel will cost more for us to leaving in few days too.

I think the petrol companies feel the chilly winds of change in the form of electric cars coming and are hitting us hard while they still can.

With fuel prices you just have to grin and bear it . Went to my car parked in street ,this morning , to find it had got a flat... My tyres are 90 % a self tapping screw with a hex head was the problem . I changed the tyre and had it repaired . $45 to fix or $40 for cash . Last time I had one fixed it cost me $25 . Yes, I do live in Sydney ....

Come to Canberra. Yesterday I paid 1.69 per ltr for super unleaded and I have no recollection of when it was last below 1.65
91 octane is cheaper but if I use that crap the old corolla goes 85 km less and likley produces more polution per tank than with 98 octane. 95 oct returns approx 55 km less

I agree with you. The better the fuel,higher octane rating , the less you use . It is all abut buying power , BTU's . You have to buy more cheaper fuel to equal less more expensive fuel .

Agree Bill, I thought the same and finds are getting smaller / less frequent whilst cost to get out there and have some fun are going the other way Sad

I’ve been using this app for some time now and it helps locate lower priced petrol stations,  not sure that it will make much of a difference in a local town as options are limited in comparison to larger metro area however still worth downloading in my opinion and checking especially when prices are at a high as the app has a feature where it charts the price cycle and you can see when it is about to come down (or back up) again.
