Petrol prices stay high in Warwick
ALLORA motorist Jenny Parker feels sorry for drivers who can't afford to put fuel in their cars because of high petrol prices.
Ms Parker said she felt there wasn't much difference between prices in different centres or between service stations in the Warwick area.
“Prices are much of a muchness. Basically, if you want to get from point A to point B you have to put fuel in your car,” she said.
“Some people may drive around looking for the best deal but could use the same amount of petrol they might save.”
According to the website MotorMouth, Warwick drivers with a diesel vehicle should have filled up at the weekend.
The prices quoted on Saturday are a seven-day rolling average.
The price for Warwick was 146.6 cents a litre compared to 149.1 in Toowoomba, 149.9 in both Kingaroy and Dalby and 147.3 at Goondiwindi.
Toowoomba motorists with vehicles that need petrol were best off for unleaded with a price of 136.9 and 135.7 for E10.
Warwick was half a cent under the price in Kingaroy for unleaded but half a cent dearer than Dalby.
Goondiwindi was 3.3 cents a litre dearer for unleaded than Warwick.
Other than Toowoomba, the cheapest E10 was at Dalby where the price was 140.7 cents a litre.
As has been the case in recent days, there were no dramatic differences in prices surveyed by the Daily News at nine Warwick service stations yesterday afternoon.
MotorMouth qualifies the information it supplies with a statement that it “displays these prices as a service to motorists travelling to regional areas and for residents in those areas to compare their own city prices with other areas throughout Australia”.
