Someone is making a killing on the petrol price....

That someone would be the oil companies and their collusion. If you use an app like Petrol Spy, you quickly notice that often:

  • the main petrol companies charge similar (high) prices, whilst independents in the area charge less (often by a substantial amount),
  • the price differs across various parts of a city, when the cost of production and delivery is the same.

Hi Cobran,

Thanks for posting these snapshots.

I would wonder what other database has such a record of graphics which illustrate the state of the economy. Perhaps the ABC might keep a record but this is an amazing array of material for anyone interested in viewing a graphic representation of the past 10 or more years. It is a credit to you and I hope that "SimpleSustainable" can retain the record somehow. We don't hear from RE much these days, but we are indebted to her too, for keeping the page operational.

So, I for one, are grateful to you for your time in providing this service, because I rarely watch the ABC news or see Alan's segment on the TV. Thanks. Solomon.

If this forum (or I) disappear, it should not be much of a concern as AK now tends to post his graphs at this website.
