    Regular occurrence in NSW.
    Even before the Ukraine War.

    A rise to the tune of 25-30 cents in a Day? Seriously?

    Fuel (98) here is about 2.50 a litre. I can afford it, but how many contactors and subbies are going to be even more hard pressed.

    One local privately owned servo changed their price 3 times in the same day.
    Final price was the cheapest.

    In Pakistan it went up the equivalent of 40cents in a week (where they only pay the equivalent of ~$1.20/litre)

    It’s the ‘normal’ fuel price cycle. Just don’t try to understand it, or get anyone to explain it, because I don’t think anyone can make any sense of it. Pretty certain it’s all just based on the ‘vibe’…

    Interestingly, for unleaded 95, as of 8am this morning there is a 61.1c difference in the cost of fuel across NSW.

    I watch those YouTube videos too, but they get all sorts of things done, with what they've got!!!

    Re: Petrol... Unless I'm mistaken, years ago, wasn't fuel costs in QLD much cheaper, because there was no TAX(?) on it or something?
    Now, there seems to be little if any difference?? 15 or 18 years ago when in England, Diesel was very expensive over there, but I loved
    my hire-car which was a 4 cylinder diesel 'Skoda' !! I would drive for say 900-kms, and think, "I suppose I should put some fuel in it!" haha.
    It was so cheap to run!! Here, we have to stop aiming for large V8's & heavy 4-wheel drives, for simple commuting! Fact of life...
    One small step for man... (but it wasn't me!!)

    There used to be an 8 cents per litre government subsidy but it ended in 2009, compliments of Cap'n Bligh.

    Us poor Transport operators used to get 30c/l rebate on diesel, then it went to 16.5c/l.

    Two months ago it was removed.

    This, combined with the fuel price rise means effectively diesel has gone from $1/l to $2.30/l.

    Thats why freight costs are so high.......

    Combined with the shortage of drivers, wage increases and super increase its not fun.....

    I always am amazed how compared to local inter/Aussie trade can cost so much, but often when ordering something from
    say China, for even just say a $10 item, that there is ZERO freight charge, to get it to our door!!! ???

    When you already own the ship, the port, the storage AND the freight company it probably isn't that hard.
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    Plus the WTO still classifies China as a developing nation, and as such is therefore entitled to shipping cost relief (worldwide)...ie; to send a letter from CN to AU is a dollar, to send the same letter from AU to CN is nearly $2 ; this is purely because AU isn't considered a developing nation... =)
