ACCC shames the dearest servo chains
COLES Express has the most expensive average petrol prices in Australia, with Woolworths and the independents generally the cheapest, according to the consumer watchdog, which says it “might be time to consider” switching.
The latest petrol report from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission analysed the annual average petrol prices.
“Our analysis of petrol prices shows the range between major retailers with the highest average price and lowest average price varied across each city considerably,” ACCC chairman Rod Sims said.
“Independent chains were the lowest priced in each of the five major cities and Woolworths was generally below the market average price in most cities.
“Average prices at Coles Express were the highest in five (capital) cities.”
