Rare fuel drop for hol­i­days

The Courier-Mail - - NEWS -

FUEL prices in Brisbane have plunged ahead of the start of the spring school hol­i­days, but the RACQ says it is still too ex­pen­sive.

On Fri­day the av­er­age price for petrol in the greater Brisbane area was 116.8¢ per litre, up to 5¢ per litre cheaper than the Sun­shine and Gold coasts, so any­one trav­el­ling from Brisbane for the school hol­i­days should fill up be­fore they set off.

But RACQ spokes­woman Re­nee Smith said south­east Queens­land mo­torists were still pay­ing too much at the pump. “Un­for­tu­nately Brisbane mo­torists are used to be­ing charged too much at the bowser, higher on av­er­age than Syd­ney, Mel­bourne, Ade­laide and Perth for the last four months,” she said.
