Just went on my morning walk and nearly fainted when I passed the local BP servo - Diesel is 170.9 cpl. Guess I'll be doing a lot more walking from here on in :-)

The Shell internet page shows Shell in Queenbeyan as 161.9 cpl for Diesel - have found this site a good guide for where I live too. Perhaps you missread the figure maybee or just competition ... interresting.

We returned from Albany (WA) yesterday, before we came back we checked on fuel watch and found Caltex Woolworths on Chester Pass Rd selling diesel for 159.9 and elsewhere in Albany it was 165.9, Caltex was just around the corner from where we were staying so naturally hubby went down there to put in enough to get home, low and behold all 4 diesel pumps were out of order, surprise surprise!!!!!! that to us is false information, it would be a bit of a coincidence that all four pumps were out of order at the same time. If they had run out of diesel they would have put up a notice to say so. The fact we paid extra for the diesel is not the issue, it is a principle that they stated a price and then could not deliver the product, I'm sure that we were not the only ones that checked out the price on fuel watch only to find that we needed to go somewhere else.

Does sound a bit suss, but if I went to a sale I saw advertised on TV and they had run out of stock when I got there, its my bad luck, I wouldn't expect them to take down all the signs!

Sorry, nothing personal, I got lumbered with a crappy apprentice today who does not listen at all and I'm in a bad mood...

Hi nickb, sorry if I sounded like I was complaining, I was only stating the fact that the service station was unable to supply the fuel out of four pumps, it wasn't as though it was late in the day it was in the morning that Hubby went to get the fuel.

Fuel watch over here is run by the government whereby all Service Stations have to put in their fuel price for the next day by 2pm, if they don't bide by that price there is heavy fines imposed. An advertisement on tv is totally different to this. I also would not worry if I missed out on a special of the day anywhere, I don't really worry too much about them anyhow.

I didn't take your post personally and I hope your evening has been better than your day sounds like.

Cheers

Local mag had front page re cost of diesel.
The trucking firms etc are saying the price is going to be passed on to the consumer (if not already).

The article also questioned why diesel so much more expensive than petrol.

Apart for greed no other reason.
