Petrol Pricing In Canberra – AGAIN!

Manny 1 February 2007 38

Why is it that Petrol has gone up again, I was travelling around Fyshwick on Tuesday and noticed it to be 105.9, then on my way home from work at Mobil Erindale it was 105.9, however, today on my way to work Mobil Erindale is 117.9, whats the story, I thought it was getting cheaper, and its not even Public Service Payday!!!

Petrol pricing is shocking and I think it should be stopped this putting the price down on Tuesday’s and then ripping us off a further 10cents on Thursday through to Sunday. Its wrong!!

What's Your Opinion?

Funny how the petrol distributors always pass on price rises instantly, but whenever their is a fall in the price of crude, they say something like:

“It’ll take a week or two for the lower price to filter through to the end-user”

He’s a clown. The NRMA has gone to the dogs in a big way with him steering the ship.

As reported overnight by the ABC:

“NRMA president Alan Evans says there was a rise of $1.50 in the price of a barrel of crude oil overnight but that should result in an increase of just one cent at the bowser.”

Has…the cashiers are usually one of two guys. I thought there was a Mrs Has.

I go there because the cashier has the most amazing butt I have ever seen.

The price never dropped at all at Ampol Mitchell. It’s been $1.19 for weeks. Don’t know why people still go there!

“Cast away, I don’t really care! V8’s are fun, it’s really that simple.”

Yep exactly lol. Infact my next V8 will be at the minumum 427 cube mostly likely 540cubes haha

Petrol is relatively cheap in this country. And as its a free market if own a petrol station i should be free to charge $3lt if I want. And you don’t like it go buy it some where else. The only issue I would have is if there is any price collusion between companies which I very much doubt there is.

Cast away, I don’t really care! V8’s are fun, it’s really that simple.

Don’t whinge about petrol prices, just syphon someone’s tank!

I fill up when empty, and have paid over $1.50 in some country towns when doing gigs.
I couldn’t really care less about the price of fuel . I need my van ….

That being said I wish Guinness was $1.22 a litre ….

ps I’m sort of scared to post here now 🙁

The saudis dropped production by 150,000 barrels (or so) a day yesterday.

You’ve no choice but to live with it.

I save the occasional 10cpl vouchers for filling my thirsty V8. That way it doesn’t cost me too much to run, and I am thus not motivated to replace it with a more efficient vehicle.

If you don’t know why I need 320 horsepower to get me to the office each morning, then that’s not my problem.

(Can that one go to the pool room?)

Agreed Mael. Quit your damn bitching, people. All you fossil fuel guzzling suckers can go die in a ditch.

If you are a customer at a servo, apparently you think it is the fault of the actual guy behind the counter, and this gives you carte blanche to abuse him or her for it.

I fill up when my car is empty.

It is too inconsequential to worry about sub $20 purchases to the point you will all get hernias from all the worry.

So petrols too expensive ? Ride

So works too far away ? Get a new job

Don’t like the rise/fall of petrol prices ? follow all of the above advice.

Different elasticities.

How come these price fluctuations only affect petrol, not other oil products? You don’t see the price of Vaseline jumping all over the place! Am I just not observant enough to notice that all oil based products have risen in price?

Should I only buy ‘Vas’ on Mondays?
