Ask RiotACT: LPG price rise

By Xr6eta - 8 November 2016 1

Ask RiotACT

Headed down the coast on the weekend and noticed LPG prices there around the low to mid 70 cents per litre.  Thought how lucky we are in Canberra to have it consistently around 60-64c per litre.  Took the 4WD in to Coles Express at Belconnen to fill it up today with LPG, imagine my horror when I found it was 79.9c per litre.  Can someone tell me what the possible justification could be for LPG to go up 15-18 cents a litre in a couple of days? I opted not to fill up at this time because I wanted to see if it was the same everywhere.  Any others found the same prices around Canberra?

What’s Your opinion?

I can only assume that as demand falls the economy of scale to produce and deliver the product increases.

It would appear that taxis are now changing from LPG Falcons to hybrid Camrys.
