As a Gungahlin resident I found it odd last Friday when I went to fill up the car at the local Servo. Given that Woolworths have had the petrol monopoly at Gungahlin for quite some time I have decided to use the newly opened Shell (Coles Express) servo. I have never been one to look at the cost per litre before entering, but Friday was different. For some reason I took a special interest at the prices between Shell (Coles) and Caltex (Woolworths). Shell had a non-discouted unleaded price of $1.44 per litre and to my amazement Caltex fuel non-discount was advertised at $1.28.
16 cents on a full tank ended up saving me over $7.00.
It is normal to see some flunctuations BUT 16 cents come on. Did the Woolworths express staff miss the memo about Public Servant Pay Day?
