Came as a shock to see the Mobil servo near the M4 has jacked up his diesel to $164.9..... He is the only one in town to do so. Will wait with baited breath to see if the others follow. Can still get it for $144.9 at Kings Langly. So its all OK at the moment

Cheers Stefan

P.S I know our rural friends might not baulk at that price but in town!! BLOODY HELL

I doubt there is a law which prevents any private company charging whatever they want for their product.

The law (and the ACCC) can only prevent collusion between private companies in rasing prices together. I don't see that happening here.

Dosen't it get up you're nose? Price hikes along with a fake fuel shortage to try and get us to buy more because we always stockpile anything in short supply irrespective of the price....
I ask myself where it's all going to end, the interest rate hikes, Food price hikes, fuel price hikes - leaves no cash for "discretional expenditure" eg casual skirt does it....
For those of us on fixed incomes times are going to get very hard and to top it off I got AIDS from some casual skirt, Acute income deficiency syndrome....

This 8c subsidy is a real joke for sure.
Last holidays, diesel in Grafton was cheaper thanTweed/Gold Coast & Grafton doesn't receive the subsidy!!!.

Yes, I know. But having known several young men die of it, I'm not adverse to making a joke. That's pretty much all I can do about it.

May I also remind you that these poor young men were someone's sons and brothers.
I might not agree with their lifestyle, but ......

And before I get slammed for being less than 100% mucho, I'd like to state that it can be confirmed by sending me casual skirt :))
Of the less expensive variety please.

Hi Stefan.
Filled up with diesel last night at Tweed Heads for 144.9c. You are doing well in the big smoke as we are supposed to received a Qld Gov subsidy 0f 8c a litre.
Hate to see what will happen in the next 2 days when half of Brisbane invades this state lol

Hey Stefan.

My old man did his trade at Lapstone RAAF base and I spent the first 10 years growing up at Hazelbrook.

I went to Hazelbrook Primary school until 1974.

We left there after cyclone Tracy and have lived up here ever since.

Cheers Steve.

but apparently we are to just "accept it and move on"...
