Pay parking has gone up.. again. Between 50c and $1.50 more per day. Near my workplace in Belconnen, a year ago it was $4.50, then $5.50, and today, $6.50. People are worried about the cost increases due to the carbon tax – estimated at $3.30 a week for electricity, for instance. This is a year-on-year increase of $5.00 a week.
Public transport is just appalling in the ACT, so we’re forced to drive. Captive market, as they say. The Greens must be dancing this morning.
