Hi,

If your travelling through Rockhampton fuel is still very cheap. Either buy your food from Woolworths (10 cents off) or Actions (4 cents off) or Doblo's (up to 12 cents off). All the figures are cents off per litre. The cheapest I seen recently is 58 cents a litre for ULP at CQP. Unreal prices and it's been going on like this for over 12 mths. Hope it keeps going.

Regards

Just watched the news and they said that fuel discounting has FINISHED. Damn!!! They said that fuel prices in Sydney by this time next week will be over the $1 mark and doesnt look like it will be going backwards.... Ouch...

97.9c/litre here in Darwin and I thought we were being ripped off considering the bleep quality of the fuel coming over from Indo.

Rocky sounds pretty good to me too.

The fuek rip off is amazing. The tanker unloads in Darwin and fuel is as stated 97c/l. Then it goes all the way down the coast and around to Adelaide where it is sold at 88c/l. We are paying 94c/l here in Peterborough and if you buy your food locally at Foodland Supermarket you can get it 5 cents a litre cheaper. Who knows what goes on. Unfotunately we need it so there is no choice in the matter.

We live in Yeppoon and shop at Bilo (no where else to go) and get 12c off at selected Shell servos, and that 12c is off at any of those servos. Its great when we travel to Brissy. But to live in Rocky they would wont to give me fuel for nothing and I was born there.

Bruce,

I'm guessing you mean "want". Do you really "want" to go down that path, hopefully it's just friendly banter, if not then it's pretty narrow thinking. Yeppoon and surrounds is extemely overrated at the prices it now commands. Just wait for a few typical summers and let's see how many of the investors that have swamped the market start to move back out, or when they find they can't rent them out as the population growth in this area is netural.

Not really sticking up for the town but your comments could be misread by travelers to the area. Rocky is a hub for the regional area with some of the cheapest prices for just about everything. Plus a central location to visit some of the tourist sites including, Blackdown NP, Gem Fields, Mt Morgan gold mine, State forests, 5 Rocks, etc, etc oohh and the beach.

:-)

Do you live in Rocky Ray? if you don't then you should start to read some news paper reports on the place and I don't think I said anything about Yeppoon being that great either.

Hi,

I do live here, and lived in the local area since I was born. Have previously invested substantially in the area (bad move). So know the area quite well. Your right you didn't say Yeppoon was that great just an assumption (shouldn't assume). Also know the investment climate in both R'ton and the coast very well and expect the crash to happen quite soon. Pity because some will loss a lot and the media and realestates are still talking up the area. No growth, no major investment, no tourism, no wealth, drought, no government support, uni about to fall over etc, etc, etc, etc. Pretty sad really as the whole area has a lot to offer.
