Who’s watch­ing?

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

HIS­TOR­I­CALLY, be­tween 1986 and 1990, when the price of crude oil was av­er­ag­ing about where it is now ($35 to $40 per bar­rel), the av­er­age price of petrol (pre­mium – there was no ‘cheap’ un­leaded petrol then) ranged be­tween 48c and 60c a litre.

This morn­ing (De­cem­ber 15) it was over $1.40. The ‘cheap’ un­leaded was $1.23. Some­one is rip­ping us off. Where is the watch­dog group (ACCC)?

ACCC said in the me­dia there was a lot of price goug­ing – what are they do­ing about it?

And where is the RACQ?
