Long road to our ruin

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

SYD­NEY fam­i­lies are fork­ing out record amounts to fill up at the bowser and drive to work on our toll­ways.

A NRMA re­port re­leased yes­ter­day found Syd­neysiders were spend­ing an av­er­age of $22,350 on trans­port ev­ery year — a third of the av­er­age NSW in­come and the high­est fig­ure in the na­tion.

The price hike was at­trib­uted to the ris­ing costs of car fi­nanc­ing, tolls and fuel.

The price of reg­u­lar un­leaded in Syd­ney hit $1.41 per litre yes­ter­day.
