This week nearly every garage I've seen (Sydney area) is charging 165.9 for E10, regardless of brand. It's cartel-like behaviour, the message goes down the line, up go the prices almost in sync.

In any case, who imagines that the fuel companies are any better-behaved than the big banks.

paid 146.7 cpl for diesel at a Liberty about a week ago.

Saw 165.9 cpl for diesel at OTR BP this morning and down the road, 157.9 cpl at Shell and 147.9 cpl at Costco next door. Suburb was Kilburn.

I'm lucky where I live as there are a large number of independent servos within about 5km and they are usually on the cheaper end of the range. Caltex, Shell & OTR BP on the other hand are always expensive right at the top end of the range.

Last time fuel was this much per barrel, the distributors were making 16 per litre. This time it was reported that their cut is 25 per litre.

In my neck of the bush 98 octane is $1.82.9lt. I'm glad that I topped-up our cars last week, when it was 12 per litre cheaper.

Thinking of the words of that old song, "I was born to be a bachelor, I'm my own man" ... unfortunately, I and many others were born to be the cash-cows of others. Economic serfdom?

Collapsing around Adelaide for now, many independant ones are the best at 119.9-121.9 per litre, average is around 1.25 per litre, diesel hasn't budged all that much but prices are slowly increasing to 1.50 At least it's not their nasty surprise of 1.59 or 1.67

Yer OTR the worst ones as they love to go up first and go down last.

Interesting that Shell next to costco was 10c higher, used to be within 2-3c difference of each other ages ago.

Puma stations in Townsville selling around 1.34c/L, my local Shell is the worse, still at 1.61c/L. We sadly havent had the price drop seen in the capitals despite fuel being delivered directly into our port.
