Ask RiotACT

I filled up at Costco on 22 January at $1.16 per litre. Checking Woolies fuel app on 23 January it would appear that the airport is the same price as most other outlets in the ACT at $112.9.
Does this mean that Costco is no longer offering cheaper petrol than anywhere else? I thought this would happen. [...]

I’m interested on hearing thoughts on this, I recently purchased a new car from a dealer in Phillip that shall remain nameless (although it does rhyme with shommonwealth boaters).  Anyway, I went to pick it up and when the salesperson was handing over the keys and going through some features (its pretty sick), I had [...]

EPIC Shell Petrol Station – Closed down???

By 23 January 2010

Hi everyone!
I was just wondering if anyone has any idea what has happened to the Shell Petrol station at Exhibition Park? I have been away from home for a while and returned the other day to see it all fenced up, the pumps removed and the shop empty. I’m sincerely hoping this is just a [...]

Perhaps Canberra’s Most Decently Priced Petrol

By 30 January 2009

Here I am banging on about petrol prices again…so I expect the usual slagging from the usual suspects – whatever!
As a motorist who actually cares about saving some money on fuel – particularly now that the prices are on the way back up again (I told you so), I’ll always keep an eye out for [...]

I know it’s the same old winge, but how comes the petrol at Exeter services and beyond is 11 Cents per Litre cheaper than here today? (Gungahlin prices).

Whinge over.

Petrol stations in gungahlin

Does anyone have any idea at all about what maybe happening with the unused service station at Amaroo?
With Forde now populated and Bonner soon to be, we really need another petrol station out here.
I’d love to see an independant servo here. Really stick it up Coles and Woolies!

Fuel Guzzling Speed Camera Vans

By 19 June 2008

Like most motorists, I’ve only ever driven past those dreaded roadside speed camera vans. Today I was on foot, and as I passed, noticed the van’s engine was running. I’m not sure how long the van had been in place, but it was there for at least 15 minutes as I walked up to and [...]
