LPG Prices skyrocket...

Postby Lockyer » Thu Mar 08, 2012 1:20 pm

Went pass a servo a couple of days back and their price for gas was 91.9c ltr ::() and I thought they're made a mistake, until I well out today (had to go to Brisbane) and went to fill up the gas and it was 85.6c ltr, it was only a few months ago we were paying 57.9c ltr.

They claim it should should start going down again in April....please don't hold your breath. :roll:

Your talking to one VERY :x angry guy here Lockyer......
The averave price North of the river is 79.9c ltr...Down South last week I was paying upto...'''99c ltr''...Bloody theives.....especially when they are selling the gas to Singapore for .06c ltr from Roma here in Qld....they are re-fining it and selling it back to us for .28c ltr.......HELLO....Who's making the bucks here ????,,,just how much tax are we paying ???? and how big a margin are the Servo's putting on it ????.......
Best price we got was about 20km our side of Toowoomba where we paid .71c ltr..... :booty

Dunno why it keeps going up but it's driving me nuts. I do close to 900ks a week, last year I bought a ute on gas to save some dollars and while it's paid itself off since then its getting close to being more cost effective to take my Landcruiser to work!! :shock:
