Hi Willem,
I just spent a glorious week driving all over the Gawler Ranges and staying at Pondanna Outstation, where I noticed your name in the visitors book. Excellent spot!
Cheers

Hi Chaz,

Yes, we enjoyed our drive around the Gawler Ranges too espewcially the Organ Pipes feature. That was, I think, in 2002 0r 2003. No doubt more development has taken place since then as National Parks staff were putting in new roads at the time.

I read an article about this recently and it would appear that the real cause of price hikes is this bloody parity system the govt. brought in. Apparantly the price of petrol and diesel are tied into Singapore prices and diesel, even though it is cheaper to refine, is dearer in Singapore due to a higher use, and that by tying the price of diesel into the Singapore price falsely inflates the price here in Australia, but, the funny thing is Autogas is tied into Saudi Arabia prices.
Once again we are shafted by the govt.
May the fleas of a thousand afghan camels infect the crutch of your enemy and may their arms be too short to scratch.

And don't forget for a moment who introduced world parity pricing back in 1979.

It was the man who was treasurer at the time, "His Oiliness", The Member for Benelong, the current Prime Minister,

John Winston Bloody Howard.

And I see tonight the budget is in a massive surplus, why does he need to keep skinning us?

Jim.

buy at Gull or liberty and save yourself up to 8 cents or more. Caltex and Mobil seem to be the dearest followed by BP here in the country.
Gull is the only one to buy from or Woolies out here

Supermarket vouchers a bit like fly buys. Horsham used to be quite competitive but deisel now 113.9 less 4c discount. What a joke, dearer with discount voucher as all discounters are now tied to a supermarket. Another scam.
Expect more rises with oil over $50 barrel and Bush despite denials said to have signed executive order for war against Iran in JUNE 2005.
What price deisel at Oodnadatta by Sept??

I AGREE!! PEOPLE ARE GETTIN' DUMBER!

Amazing how many people think they are "SAVING" with their shopper dockets. Yes, they want to GIVE you somethin for nothin... You are tied into buying from THEIR stores to save $$..

Blind Freddy can see that they inflate the food prices to compensate.

Don't be dumb enough for 1 Micromillinano micron that they are GIVING YOU ANYTHING.

I like the ACCC saying that when there are only 2 players left in the fuel game, after all the independants are wiped out, that we will still get COMPETITIVE PRICES... Is the whole world gettin dumber?

Queensland are different as they have fuel subsidy, though that doesn't explain the larger disparity between ULP & Diesel there seems to be in QLD...

see here QLD Fuel Subsidy

Interesting?!

I drive regularly from Queensland down to Sydney on the Summerland/Pacific Highways.
What puzzles me is that very often fuel is cheaper in Kyogle and Casino NSW than it is in my nearest station in Beaudesert QLD!
Of course as soon as I get to Grafton that situation reverses itself and prices go through the roof.
