They are there is no 2 ways about it and the sad thing is it will only get worse.... Cant imagine in 10 years time what we will be paying.... Actually I don't want to know :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Here in the northern and western suburbs it's been 64.9 for weeks and i am sick of it. Ghia97.... mate get a new oxygen sensor and you should improve consumption a heap. I did and I get 17 Ltr per hundred klm now. Which is not that much more than petrol. It still costs half the price of petrol to run on gas. when I got first converted in 99 it was 13cpl about $12 a tank. My last tank was $45 I nearly choked!

In my ol' ZJ Fairlane about 9-10 years ago i could get gas for around 18cpl in Ballarat. I was recently in Robe S.A the petrol was 146.9cpl and gas 82.9cpl. I couldnt understand why on the same why petrol was dearer in Melbourne! So much for discounting and it must cost nothing to cart fuel to remote areas now !

The exhorbitant price of fuel in remote area's is totally unjustified. just for example say a tanker carries 100,000 litres. If you drive it 5 hours away (10hr return) at a cost of say $2000 at $200hr running cost then that adds 1% to the load. or roughly 1.5cL so how does it cost 10c more for fuel in Horsham? 20cL more in Bordertown????
I can accept 5cL and maybe 15cL for Central Australian locations. I don't believe that 30cL or more can be justified. I fuel is transported by bulk rail freight for the long hauls to Alice Springs depot etc. then it should only cost a couple of cents per litre to transport to the local hub. Am I right?

A lot of places in the NT are on Generator Power (Loads of Diesel) - so the up the price to cover that (they dont get lots of business). Theres also the supply/demand thing - a lot of them are stations and see a profit to be made in the market.

I just completed a little drive up the QLD coast, into darwin, down through NT/Alice, SA and then home.

Cheap : Broken Hill at under 60c. Expensive : $1.09 at Bourke and Wills Roadhouse, and half the time the pump doesnt start

Surprise : Yulara/Kings Canyon are 73c, the stations up the road (100km) are 99c

Special Mention goes to all the idiots with sites with leaking pumps : Pick up the Nozzle, and while your screwing it to the car it goes up to 35c.

I complained about it, and was told "tuff" most times : although that seems to change when you talk about calling the Supply Company.
