It’s probably not the first time someone has raised this topic on RA, but it really gets under my skin.
I just spent a few days in Sydney, and filled up on the M4 for $1.15 per litre, only to come home and find prices close to $1.30. It’s just absurd.
No one can tell me that the nations capital is so remote and so small that we deserve to pay 15cents a litre more than Sydney.
We just cop it sweet, and the oil companies screw us. It’s time Canberra made some noise that gets heard. A good place to start would be to stop buying our petrol from the big boys. Coles and Woolies drive most of it these days.
There are still a few independants around, but as long as we are too lazy to go out of our way in order to fight, nothing will change.
Maybe someone else has some ideas about what else the people of Canberra can do. I just won’t accept NOTHING as an answer.
