Latest on here in Birdsville...Shell $1.840 15 May/Mobil $1.790 21 May. Also anyone know about Innamincka.
Trying to get a bit of a hold on the budget for the trip out for the gathering. Now when I get the today price do I add 10% 20% 30% 40% anyone guess I suppose.
But I am wandering if to save on fuel do I buy my grog out there hahahaha ok I'll give up the beer....no I might stay home and drink all day think it might be cheaper. No more Scotch & Cola cans though (thanks Kev 07) .

Cheers Bruce

G'day Bruce

Not bad at Shell - on the bitumen 800km north of Perth last week diesel was $1.86.

I reckon it's now about staying longer, and drinking slower; or perhaps re-positioning the yard arm so that sun comes over a few hours later

Cheers
John

Sorry John for interrupting your thread, but did you notice Kev's updated signature? Makes me sick to think that anyone could be so narrow minded!!
At least he got the 5 O' clock somewhere bit right. Anyway, back to my Tooheys BLUE. Cheers

Diesel has been at the $1.80 mark at quite a number of outlets here in Newcastle for the past couple of days so I thought it would have been much dearer in places like Innaminka.
The present upward trend seems to be gathering momentum, so maybe if you budget for a 50% increase, Scary hey.
Don't get to carried away & give up the beer, there is nothing in the world that should force you to do that. The later Yard arm time seems like a good suggestion, trouble is will our wives allow the same length of session? LOL & cheers

I will check the price of diesel tomorrow at Shell because I didn't get a chance today. Stubbies are $5.50 and Rum & Cola $9.50 - bring grog with you.
