Struth!! Thats getting nasty. Drove thru Mt Magnet today, it was $1.95 there, but only a $1.88 at Sandstone. I cant work that one out either, thought that Mt Magnet being on the main hwy, would be a bit cheaper?

Hey Axel

$2.51 isn't to bad considering that in 1991 it was $1.50 so a $1 Jump in 17 years isn't to bad.

I used to work at the Tanami gold mine in 1991, 40 odd km up the road from Rabbit Flat.

We won't tell Jim that you can't get Gas out there will we.

How far away are you from Kakadu, as I will organize the didj for the young fella.

Cheers Steve.
