I had some diesel delivered to my place today and thought it was a bit high so hi hit the net and did some surfing .
The fuel watch sites are pretty good for the capitals but not so good for other areas like Geelong.
One site for fuel prices gave the numbers of numerous service station in Geelong. I rang some of these numbers some would give me the price but some would not. Apco were very stroppy when I asked for a price. They said it was against the law to give out fuel prices.

Has this always been the case or is it a new thing with fuel stations?

Not giving prices over the phone is a commercial decision. They won't give it out because it would allow their competitors to post their price $0.00.1 cheaper. This way the owner has to either subscribe to a price watch company or get it the car to check out the competitors

If the person states it is the law that it can't be given out over the phone ask what is the applicable legislation, Division Number, Part Number and Section number. Also enquire has the company's interpretation of this been tested in Court or whether there is a precedent

They'll hang up

Of course it could be that the boss's direction is law in that office
