Hi all.
I have just sent this email below to Chanel 7 TDT about there push to lower fuel prices. Don't know what you all think but to me the only ones getting any gain out of it are people in the Capital cities who can buy the discounted PETROL.
What are your thoughts. DukeHi to TDT.
I am contacting you to express my dissapointment at what is happening with your campaign to bring about lower Petrol prices. I agree with you 100% that fuel prices are way too high but what you are doing is penalizing Diesel vechicle owners and people who live out side the main City centres.Have noticed in the last few days that the difference between Petrol and Diesel has blown out to 20cents + in all areas and petrol is continuing to climb where there is no outlets of cheaper Petrol to force the price down.All that is happening is that the oil company,s are putting up the price of Diesel in all area,s and the same with petrol where there is no competition to make up for there discounting to compete with discounted independents participateing in your programme to force the price down.Lets have it for all fuels every where or not at all because the only one,s hurting are the one,s paying the highest price to start with.

I agree. This seems to be the case in Adelaide too. What the servos are losing due to the campaign (this week end to come it is 14c/litre on petrol from United forcing others to drop their petrol prices a bit) they are picking up by bashing diesel users. Perhaps we should call for all diesel users to email Channel 7 TDT. What was that email address again??

Good on you Duke. Trouble is, TDT panders to that city majority too.

TDT?

What's TDT? Turbo Diesel......Trailer?

I actually know what you are talking about but they are so interested in the bush that the show is not seen in Broken Hill.

Filled the Patrol from empty the other week $220.00. Now that is a fuel bill.

I'll be interested to see if you get a reply.

"TDT" was an ABC current affairs show called "This Day Tonight" which ran until the 70's. It featured Bill Peach and Peter Luck. Great show if I remember rightly....

I too have voiced my concern, FWIW... As a side note, I've done a couple of trips to Sydney in the truck over the last 3 weeks... To my amazement, fuel in Yass(service centre on the highway) was cheaper by 4c/L than Melbourne both times...???

I was reading the other day that standard unleaded petrol is 21 cents a litre retail, at the pump in Saudi Arabia, that's right .... TWENTY ONE CENTS A LITRE!

Well then, why are successive governments telling us it's 'world parity pricing'?

well, there's a catch.
If you can afford a car you are a dirty capitalist and deserve to die.
..and you do. ...or one of your family does. ...regularly.
