In wagga Wagga it is $171.9

And no I dont wish I had gone to petrol :-)))

We chose this activity knowing that one of the biggest costs associated with it would be fuel - so we either 'suck it up' or we 'sell up'

Compare it to other sports/activiites/recreatioanla ctivity and it is STILL excellent value for money (IMHO)

I am currently planning my CSR trek (12th July depature) and have calculated the fuel (based on Exploreoz data and a bit of crystal ball agzing) at about $2,500 for the trip

I have only 2 recreational passions in life and they are: Fishing and 4x4 - fuel is the cost of having those 2 passions

I have accepted I have to 'suck it up' :-)))))))

Yep noticed that too here in Wagga.....lucky we filled up early in the week & hopefully we will get through to next Tuesday to fill up again......if you can accept the huge upfront cost, having a 159L tank can get you through the peaks in fuel cost.

Cheers

I have been filling up at the Toll Yard pumps lately

They are consistently cheaper than any of the 'usual suspects' - by anywhere up to 4c per litre cheaper

While the current price hurts when travelling the thing that concerns me is the fact that almost everything we use or eat is actually shifted 7 times by trucks and those big suckers use heaps so what is going to happen to the prices in the supermarkets.

The others I feel for are the farmers and graziers and the people in the western areas where they have long distances to travel for everything. Although petrol is currnetly cheaper it is all relative in that it is still expensive.
Interest rates might be hurting the home buyers in the cities but the price flow on is going to be worse.

Its interesting that the reserve bank sees fit to keep increasing the official money rate and the banks doing their own thing regardless of the reserve bank to a small amount of people with a mortgage. They say because we, the mortgage belt are spending far to much money on imported goods.. And they are right, its imported fuel we are wasting it on , just to get to and from work so we can pay the mortgage!! Michael

Gentleman

I live in Orange NSW its $1.72.9 for DSL about 18 cent dearer than ULP
We have being getting ripped off up here for years as two guys controlled the fuel supply in this town but i look at it this way

You have to have it so you have to buy it long way to walk up here from Sydney

and i too love camping watching the kids run around in the best country in the world so if it cost me money to do that so be it

Im planning a trip next July to Central OZ god knows what it will cost by then but it still cheaper than getting on a plane and it alot safer

I filled up this morning in Calliope for $1.499 and got my full 150l quote with the shopper docket. Still hurts the hip pocket though.
