i paid $1.38.9 for diesel

Thu, 2011-01-20 08:27

i paid $1.38.9 for diesel yesterday!! what the!

The talk is 'Oil prices have sky rocketed to $almost $100 a barrel'

 

Bull sh!ting  f***ers, Oil went up to $150 a barrel previously, and what were we payin? $1.35-1.40 per lt.

But the catch is back then, the AU dollar was down in the .70c mark, now its up at $1

 

The pertol and oil compnies are making squilliains ans squillians.

 

Comsumer watch dog has gone quiet on petrol prices, wonder why..... maybe because the Govenment gets a % value of every lt sold, not a fixed rate.

 

When i used to work in a servo many moons ago, the servo made most of its money out of sales in the shop, not out of petrol...how things have changed.

recover costs

Thu, 2011-01-20 09:12

BP had a few dramas last year and lost a few dollars after their rig was lost and a few litres of oil , so i suppose they have to recoupe their costs from some where,  and i see on the news last night BP now are proposing to carry out deep water drilling test in the Australian bite, we have huge gas resources up north and oil exploration around OZ but do we get any cheaper fuel or gas , whos looking after who

I just got caught for a $139.9 a liter, and that was the average on the road today! WTF, as for diesel hanging around the $137~139 range the whole month as well, it's just plain cr@p,

Dollar is stronger and USA / Europe demand comes off going into Fed, so how they working this one out sh!ts me.

I normaly do use it when at work, it's just when the Mrs takes my car and I get it back & find out in the morning on the way to work the low fuel light is on.... that's when you got bugger all choice and have to bite the bullet.   and as I'm on a fuel card through the work, Caltexfleet card, you don't get any discount with docs

Before the flood we were paying 140 for diesel, with only one servo operating it went to 157 then back to 152 when the Caltex re opened, havent needed any of late but expect to pay around 157+ which is bugger all compared to Exmouth or the rip off stations in between who think it is liquid gold

Just in time

Sun, 2011-01-23 00:32

Just in time for all the crew towing plastic all over the rotto trench. Mind you, who gives at rats arse if theirs a chance of a metro beakie.

As for cheap diesel, my 100 series runs further on a tank of standard BP diesel than it does on the cheaper stuff Gull sells. Negates the cheap price when towing or travelling long distances that's for sure.

$1.69 last time I filled up in Knx.

Agree with you about the BP Diesel BJ.

The car runs smoother and further on BP than it does on anything else.

bit of a read, but just shows how we being set up for a price gouge of note!

 

The Aussie dollar is now 30% stronger than it was 3~5 years ago, and crude prices are in the same region of US$ pricing.

yet we paying 15~20% more than the projected price based on Au$ crude prices...WTF!!!

A FUEL monitoring agency has

Mon, 2011-01-31 11:48

A FUEL monitoring agency has accused the major supermarkets of slugging motorists to subsidise their petrol and bread war.

FUELtrac general manager Geoff Trotter says petrol prices rose by 19 cents a litre to over $1.40 a litre over the weekend.

"In what appears to be a pretty coordinated move, it appears that Shell Coles express decided to move their service stations up in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast," Mr Trotter told AAP today.

"They moved up to a price of 143.9 cents a litre and this was at a time the Shell wholesale price had actually come down.

"The effective Shell wholesale price was 124.37, which meant they were making a retail margin of over 19 cent a litre, which is extraordinarily high."

The last time the petrol prices were above $1.40 a litre was in mid-2008 when the Australian dollar was around 98 US cents and the West Texas Crude price reached a record $US148 a barrel.

The price for a barrel of West Texas intermediate crude oil was around $US88, with the Australian dollar at 99 US cents, Mr Trotter said

 
 
 
Needs to be some political influence on this!, 19c a litre!
Wonder howmany litres of fuel Shell Sells every day?
 
Did see yesterday Diesel at 1.42 a litre....

How people run there big outboards be up there in price. I still can not understand price of diesel needs half the amount of work and labour to make. Money grab that’s all it is . (Trucks transport) diesel use to always be 20 to 30 cents cheaper . Needs fuck all refining . Government grab
