Rare fuel drop for holidays
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.
