You can say that again.

Recently filled at the Shell at Singleton at $1.589 and then the next day at Newdegate BP at $1.583.

For those that don't know Newdegate is on the way to Esperance 400+k from Perth. Even Esperance was less that 1 cent dearer than Singleton.

$1.48 at the Dardanup garage Greg, and has been for a while.
There is a cartel operating in the greater Bunbury area and no-one seems to care.
Spread the word and support the little guy doing the right thing in Dardy. as it is only a short enjoyable drive from Bunbury CBD on the new road.

Thats not how it works at the one at North Lakes. You specify the total amount you want to buy first (true) but if you take less than that amount you are only charged on credit card for amount used .... not the higher amount you specified. No refund needed. Works well paying at pump as you don't need to leave your vehicle unattended to go to pay. A great system that works IMHO and no drive offs without paying.

Penong used to be 3 - 4 cents cheaper than Ceduna, but hasn't been for the past year.

Hi MH,
I remember that too but maybe not for 10 years. I think it was because Ceduna was dearer than everywhere else but I think the Ceduna BP and Shell truckstops have lifted their game.
At Caltex Penong I usually find the previous diesel sale was $500+. They turn over a lot of diesel.

Bruce - Yeah, it doesn't pay to cut it too fine. I was travelling down the GCR and calculated I had enough to reach Laverton with at least 15 litres to spare.
However, I stopped to help one of the indigenes who was broken down with a flat and no wheelbrace.
I couldn't help him him with a wheelbrace, but he just had to put the bite on me - first, for water, then for fuel! (Opal).
I thought I gave him about 5 litres, but it must have been closer to 10 litres.
Then when I started off from Tjukayirla, I reckoned just under 2/3rds of a tank would see me into Laverton, with what was left in one jerrycan after giving the quantity to the black fella.
However, I ran into a sudden stormy change of weather that resulted in a change of wind from Easterly to strong Westerly. I didn't realise how strong the headwind was until I stopped for a leak.
This wind change affected my fuel consumption and calculations, and I ran out, 130kms from Laverton!
I only had the remainder of the jerrycan, that I had partly emptied into the black fellas container - and I was shocked to see it was only half full!
I certainly engaged in some "fuel saving driving techniques" when I did the final leg into Laverton!
I reckon I was running on fumes the last 5 or 10 kms!
I filled up in Laverton - and the tank is only supposed to hold 65 litres, and it took 69 litres!
I suppose I could have always put the bite on some passing black fellas for some fuel, if I didn't make it into Laverton! LOL

Cheers, Ron.

$1.271 at several places in Perth today, and 4c less with a shopper docket.

I still think there's a heap of petrol retailers creaming it in with the current oil price.
The last time the oil price was this low, petrol was $1.00 a litre.

By far the greatest current rort is in the PULP and 98RON prices.
You can't tell me a few extra octane warrants a 12c to 17c difference in pricing.

Agree on the mark up for 95 & 98 RON fuels, Ron.

Been 176.9c/L here at Winton most of this year. Just filled my xr6t a few minutes ago, 178.9c/L. 27.34L for 350kms.....almost cheap motoring? No choice here, 98 only. :-(

At Winton, ULP is 161.9, diesel dropped to 152.9 for a while, and has been 153.9 for a few weeks. With only Caltex, BP & an independent in town, fuel prices are consistent between the 3.

Diesel at IOR Cloncurry is 152.5 at the mo,

Yes I've almost always filled at Caltex at Penong when heading west.
High turnover = clean diesel
In Adelaide, I've been buying BP Ultimate diesel at Flinders Park for $1.38 .....or I can go to the local Woolworths and pay 10c more and get a 4c discount!
Bit of a no-brainer - I don't like supermarket fuel!
