Word on the street

SHOULD CAIRNS FUEL COM­PA­NIES BE HELD AC­COUNT­ABLE FOR HIGH PRICES? IF SO, HOW?

The Cairns Post - - VIEWS -

KAREN CO­P­LEY White Rock Yes, I sup­pose. They shouldn’t be pass­ing the cost on to con­sumers.

DANE CON­NOLLY Cairns City Yeah 100 per cent. It should just be level ev­ery­where. Maybe they should be fined.

STEVE SHEL­TON Lit­tle Mul­grave Of course they should, be­cause they are price goug­ing. It should be the same across the board.

CHARMAINE DWYER Bun­ga­low Of course. They should be pulled in line by the gov­ern­ment. I go down to the new one, United Petroleum.

PETER DUSTIN Bun­ga­low Some­body should have to jus­tify the price. They are charg­ing up when other com­pa­nies can sell it cheaper.

DAN HU­BER Fresh­wa­ter Yes. Gov­ern­ment in­ter­ven­tion and capped fuel prices. More com­pe­ti­tion maybe, to get prices down.

MARK BUNTER Ma­nunda Yes. That’s a dif­fi­cult ques­tion. Just com­pe­ti­tion. There’s not enough com­pe­ti­tion to keep prices down.
