Well I’m certain there are Rioters out there who’ll be able to tell me if last Thursday was public service pay day. I’m pretty sure it was because the petrol prices went up.
I drive past the Gull station in Belconnen on my way to pretty much anywhere and, having recently found myself the (not)owner of a car, I have begun to take an interest in petrol prices. And they are interesting.
Every other Wednesday the price of unleaded mysteriously jumps anywhere from 7c to 10c between when I go to uni in the morning and when I go to dancing in the evening. And then during the next fortnight I watch as it slowly goes back to the (now) regular price somewhere a bit more than 100c.
Now I know the motto goes that if you have to choose between a conspiracy and a stuff up, go for a stuff up, but I don’t think this is one.
Anyone else noticed a similar phenomenon at other petrol stations around the place?
