Punch laments petrol cost

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

Bun­bury MLA Don Punch has aired a griev­ance mo­tion in Par­lia­ment about the high price res­i­dents pay for petrol com­pared with other parts of WA.

Mr Punch said he in­ves­ti­gated the price of petrol and found the cost in Bun­bury was of­ten above the cost in other re­gional cen­tres, in­clud­ing Mar­garet River.

“I have looked into this con­cern lo­cally and was sur­prised to find that on that day, petrol was cheaper in Kal­go­or­lie, Man­jimup, Bus­sel­ton and Al­bany than it was in Bun­bury, which is closer to Kwinana,” he said. “Just in the South West it was also cheaper in Har­vey, Mar­garet River and Au­gusta.”

Mr John­ston said he did not know why there was a dif­fer­ence be­tween Bun­bury and sur­rounds.
