Use people power to drive down fuel prices
BUNDABERG motorists were filling up their tanks with lowest prices in Queensland last month, according to data released by RACQ.
The report showed that Bundy's average fuel was between 2.9 to 3.4 cents per litre cheaper than nearby communities.
The RACQ's spokesperson Renee Smith said while RACQ considered prices around the Wide Bay last month to be fair, competition had been weaker than Maryborough for some time.
Ms Smith called on motorists to use people power to drive down prices wherever they lived.
"For example we urge Hervey Bay motorists travelling through Maryborough to buy there, and if filling up at home, ensure they're supporting the cheaper service stations,” she said.
"Local servos aren't going to drop their prices if they're getting plenty of business.
"While ULP prices in Bundy were cheap in the start of August, they shot up in the last week of the month.”
