Mornin' All.

Living in a regional town an hour out of Perth I'd expect to pay a little more for 'bits and pieces'.
Yesterday I picked up an exchange 9kg bottle of gas and was slugged $38.00.

Generally in Perth once a week, can someone please give me an idea of the current prices around the Eastern suburbs.


Cheers......Lionel.

Graham,
I'm from Busso, but just bought a new 9Kg gas bottle here in Cairns at "Crazy Clarks"(sp ?) for $39 however saw them here in the camping stores here for as much as $59 each.
I know some-one who 'bought' an old gas bottle for $1 and took it to Bunnings in Busso and swapped it for a FULL "swap & go" gas bottle (about $30 full) he he he

The absolute cheek of some people :)

I was on about this a while ago - I'm in Torquay and $38 - $40 is the normal STING for a change over - it also seems to go higher if the c/van parks are full.It's a rob but THEY have us over a barrel - Bunnings or Ray's generally $10 - $12 cheaper.
