With the school holidays well underway motorists are being warned to fill up the tank as Fuel Prices are expected to skyrocket by up to 40 cents in the coming days.
Local residents in Melbourne have already suffered the worst of the price rise with a BP Service Station near Southbank charging a whopping 170.9 cents per litre of Unleaded overnight.
At this stage you can still grab a bargain but you will have to be quick to fill up your car full of Fuel.
Cheap fuel has been reported:
– New South Wales in Yagoona for 124.7
– Queensland near Bundamba fuel is only 130.2
– Australian Capital Territory near Canberra 130.9
– South Australia in Pooraka 132.5
– Western Australia in Bayswater 135.7
– Northern Territory in Winnellie 135.5
– Hobart near Bothwell 139.9
Over the next few days leading into the Weekend you can expect Fuel Prices to increase dramatically by up to 45 cents per litre in some states across Australia. This huge price increase will be the highest level since May — in the wake of drone attacks on Saudi Arabian oil fields earlier this month.
NRMA’s Peter Khoury said this meant retail prices could go up as soon as Friday.
