ACCC shames the dear­est servo chains

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

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.”
