Just went back on my spreadsheet and on 19/04/2005 I paid $1.219 for diesel, my last tank on 11/05/2021 I paid $1.277. There have been a lot of ups and downs in between but todays price is still very close to 2005 prices. These prices are with the Perth area.

I was very surprising to see where we stand compared to the rest of the world.

I'm just glad I don't drive a petrol vehicle it was 175.9 in my area yesterday. Diesel fluctuates a bit and currently around the 132 mark.

Yebbut Dunc you and I know Wednesday is the "spike-up" day here in Perth (FuelWatch is your friend). What was it last Tuesday?

A hell of a lot cheaper. Today there is 34c difference between lowest and highest in my area. One of my vehicles is novated so I have a couple of fuel cards and on one I get 10c discount so I'm pretty well forced into that company and the discount is also very welcome. My Troopy, I can get fueled up anywhere and fortunately with that, one of our local independents is regularly the cheapest or close to the cheapest around.

That report by the RAC was very interesting also when you look at our emissions compared with most other countries.

By using "Fuelwatch", there is never a reason in Perth to pay the top price. There is always a site within reach (north & south of the river) at around $1.30 per litre for petrol at present. Often less with 4c discounts.

There used to be a page on the net showing the prices of fuel in many countries around the world. Unfortunately it is no longer visible. The big feature of the table was it was presented with bars for the fuel price. The LH end of the bars was green and was the price at the fuel gate that the oil companies received. The LH end of the bars was red and represented the 'Australian content,' otherwise known as the local taxes. The notable thing was the line formed by the change of colour was nearly a straight line. That showed that the differences in prices for fuel in the countries were mostly down to the local taxes.

It is not the oil companies that are screwing us, it's the local authorities.

Despite the fact that we think we have very high prices for fuel, you will see from the link Duncan posted, we have one of the lowest prices in the world.
