I try as best as I can to manage the purchase of fuel for my cars.
Suzi and I went for a country drive up to Kilcoy last weekend with the fuel gauge showing half when we left. I thought we’d fill up sometime on Sunday but didn’t.
So when we’re nearly home, I’m looking around for that 113.9 cents per litre as that was my expectation.
So surprise on the way back to Redcliffe to find that Coles fuel at Deception Bay was priced at 151.9 for E10 Unleaded and at Redcliffe Woolworths Caltex at 155.9
I ended up with Premium Unleaded (98) at 711 at Clontarf.
So Mr Simms, (ACCC) what’s doing with this blatant rip-off of consumers.
I wrote to you a year ago about the same thing and your office said “retailers of all kinds are able to set their own prices’ and ‘that’s not against the law’
Now, you’re suggesting that you’ll look at what’s going on.
Simply put from a consumer’s viewpoint, the supply of fuel for vehicles is an essential service and that Major national and international fuel companies ARE ripping off consumers is just WRONG
Let’s get this sorted – state and federal governments need to take a stand.
