Announcements

South Australia announces retail fuel price reporting trial!

Score one for the good guys! South Australia is joining the near-real time retail fuel price reporting team with a two year trial to commence in spring 2020; so mark September 1 in your calendar South Australians.

This is great news from Attorney-General Vickie Chapman’s office following recent findings delivered by the South Australian Productivity Commission that the presence of real-time pricing data helped motorists make informed choices.

We have very limited fuel price coverage of South Australia as the data simply doesn’t exist in the public domain, with this announcement from the South Australian Government we look forward to providing the same level of fuel price coverage that WA, NSW, NT and QLD currently enjoy.

We’ll reach out to SA State Government this week and put our names on the waiting list of interested fuel price publishers!


If you’re from VIC, TAS or the ACT, keep up the pressure by joining our e-mail campaign to deliver near-real time retail fuel price reporting in your State.

Join the campaign.

Letters to the editor from March

Each month we respond to positive and negative feedback collected from the past month. While we did our utmost to take action from each and every individual feedback we’ve received we may have let this monthly Letters to the editor Post slide a bit… so this is a summary since last June!

We rely on this feedback to better this site so please hit the feedback buttons at the bottom of each page where you think we can do better.

Here’s some of the feedback received since June.

What is FuelPrice Australia? – 1. Maybe you could have an example letter of what to write. 2. More info on whom the letter are to. 3. What to expect in response 4. How to follow up? 5. Many of your users (such as myself) would get to this page and think, “Nice idea, i’d like to help, but if i do this the likely place my email will go is into some bureaucrats email bin”

Consider it done! Join the retail fuel price reporting campaign for VIC, SA, TAS and the ACT.

what is the issue with showing fuel prices at Penrith when fuel prices at albion pk are accessible

We’ve added Penrith as a town; it’s visible now!

We know our lack of Suburb support is frustrating and are actively working on reviving it. In the interim visit the nearest town/city in NSW for fuel price trends and nearby fuel station prices.

Fuel prices in Brisbane – I live in north west Qld a long way from Brisbane so its absolutely useless.

We agree. We’ve vastly increased our town/city coverage in Queensland, have a look at nearby towns/cities. We’ll continue added additional towns and as above re-introduce Suburb support as soon as possible.

Palmerston – Get prices

Done. Give it 24 hours for daily average prices and Map price bands to appear in Palmerston, NT.

Fuel prices in Bendigo – Does not have all fuel stations listed e.g. Apco. There are at least 2 Apco fuel stations and they sell for less than the other brands more regularly

Fuel prices in Melbourne – Update every hour or two. 8 hours is too long

Stawell – You could make sure your information is accurate and that the people giving it to you are telling the truth. The information about Stawell Ararat and Horsham in Vic is wildly inaccurate. Ararat in particular is currently $1-59 and has been for some time. Stawell is $1-47 at the Shell and $1-50 at BP. I’m told by the Shell that Horsham are also $1-56, not the $1-47 you claim. I would like an explanation as I am getting so angry at current prices out here in western Vic that I am asking newspapers to investigate it. Your claimed prices for Ararat are 19 cents a litre less than actual prices which have been steady for a while now. The prices I have just quoted you are based on what I have just witnessed this morning and yesterday morning.

Fuel prices in Shepparton – You only show selected service stations, WHY? Is this site run by Caltex and BP? I’ll look for a better site to use.

Victorian retail fuel price coverage is a joke compared to WA, NSW, NT and QLD. We’re showing whatever we can find. Join the retail fuel price reporting campaign for VIC.

Official and accurate retail fuel price data doesn’t exist in Victoria and without it our coverage – and that of other Apps and websites – will continue to suffer until State Government join the other above States by introducing a retail fuel price monitoring scheme.

Join the retail fuel price reporting campaign for VIC.

Fuel prices on the Sunshine Coast – This page is usually helpful but the info is missing today. There is usually a chart here and there’s usually a list of the cheapest and most expensive stations. Hope you can fix it?

Thanks for the heads up! We gave the programmers a little too much rope… and you know the rest.

Fuel prices across Australia – I was looking for a price alert function that would send an e-mail (or other alert) when prices in a particular area drop below an entered price … I can’t seem to find this function for free on any petrol price app or website!!

We’re with you on that one Rhonda. What’s holding us back on releasing this feature is how to define that low price.

Should we decide when a price alert goes out by looking at recent trends or leave it up to you (the user) to lock in a set price limit. Drop a comment below on your thoughts so we can make this happen.

Fuel prices in Queensland – Want Financial year average, can’t find it

Fuel prices in Victoria – require the average fuel price across the last financial year

It’s right here, enjoy! We’ll add support for further date filtering of average prices when able.

Fuel prices in Geraldton – Tomorrow

Fuel prices in Geraldton – What is tomorrows fuel prices for Geraldton. How can I find that?

Puma Guildford – when can I know tomorrow’s fuel prices

Puma Myalup – I want tomorrow’s price

Fuel prices in Western Australia – update

Tomorrow’s prices for WA towns/cities and fuel stations appear every day on FuelPrice Australia from 3:00pm (AWST), the current day’s price then display from 7:00am (AWST).

Average fuel prices in Hobart – To have a list of Fuel stations s and their prices. Considering there are lot less now. Hofm radio station does a very good job in relating fuel prices, but does not happen regularly unfortunately. Bennetts would have to be the most expensive all the time.

Unleaded 91 – Average fuel price in DevonportAccurate tas data

Average fuel prices in Tasmania – Be more accurate with your readings

There is no official retail fuel price coverage for Tasmania. Join the retail fuel price reporting campaign for TAS.

Until the Tasmanian State Government joins WA, NSW, NT and QLD by introducing a retail fuel price monitoring scheme our coverage – and that of other fuel price Apps and websites – will continue to suffer.

(If the Tasmanian State Government wants to dish out another $60,000 to support certain fuel price Apps we’ll happily put our hands up!)

Join the retail fuel price reporting campaign for TAS.

United Petroleum Orange Peisley St. – What r 91 95 and the rest of them mean please

We’ll get that added to the Station templates shortly with simple, clear definitions of each fuel type with links to more information.

Fuel prices in Brisbane – Price for EV

We’ll be investing further into EV datasets as they become available. If you’re an electric vehicle user what is important to you when looking for nearby charge stations? Drop a comment below on your thoughts so we can make this happen.

Fuel prices across Australia – Per gallon, per liter? No info.

Per litre. Litre is the standard measurement unit for fuel products everywhere bar the United States and parts of Latin America.

Fuel prices in Brisbane – I appreciate your efforts, but I find the ‘fuel pricing trends’ section jargon heavy and thus not clear. Are you able to please state in plain language, till what date does the downward trend (in your estimation) continue to, before it starts to climb again? Please consider. Thanks.

Thanks for letting us know where we can do better. We’ve focussed on providing those fuel price trend snippets based on current and fuel prices from the past few days, we don’t yet support short-term future estimates as each State and town/city has its own pricing cycle. In WA, it’s up to a weekly pricing cycle, while here in Brisbane it can be anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks.

When we are confident of being able to reliably provide short-term estimates we’ll get this feature out to everyone. 🙂

Fuel prices in Queensland – Look at fuel watch WA!

Any more breadcrumbs to follow? What do you want to see added from the FuelWatch site for Queensland? Drop a comment and we’ll make it happen.

Suburbs in Western Australia – Country prices

Done. We’ve dramatically increased towns/cities coverage in Western Australia.

Fuel prices in New South Wales – need map

Done. We migrated from Google Maps to Mapbox and maps are back up and running across FuelPrice Australia.

Manage Account – Navigation is pathetic

Manage Account – why am I creating an account that doesn’t seem to do anything?

Mobile users will be seeing the new Material Design layout with slide out drawer menu and focus tabs (e.g. Map, Chart, Prices, etc.) on most screens. The Manage Account screen for logged-in users will be getting more attention this quarter.

Fuel prices in Queensland – I want sunshine coast

We’ve got you covered. Sunshine Coast is right here.

Fuel prices in Western Australia – Not interested in historical stats etc etc. Just want cheapest local fuel.

Jump through to your nearest WA town/city to see your cheapest local fuel.

Diesel – Average fuel price in Adelaide – free fuel

Not sure about free but fuel prices are currently at its lowest since monitoring began here on FuelPrice Australia!

The FuelPrice Report – Sydney – March, 2020

E10, ULP 91, ULP 95 and ULP 98

For the month of March, 2020 all Unleaded fuel types – E10, ULP 91, ULP 95 and ULP 98 – followed similar price trends ending the month with cheaper retail fuel prices.

From 1st March – 16th March, these fuel types had very few retail price changes. They only jumped 1-3 cents in retail price, but on 16th March they all experienced a significant increase in their prices with a steady price increase of 11 cents in only 3 days.

E10, ULP 91, ULP 95 and ULP 98 all experienced their highest retail prices from 19th March – 20th March.

E10 top prices were $1.40 on 19th March and $1.41 on 20th March.

ULP 91 and ULP 95 top prices were $1.41 on 19th March and $1.42 on 20th March.

ULP 98 top prices were from $1,61 on 18th March to  $1.59 on 24th March with the top price being on 20th March with $1.64.

On 24th March the above fuel types had a decrease of 5 cents in one day to 25th March.

From 25th March – 31st March they have all experienced a steady decrease in average retail price with 31st March being the lowest prices listed in the month.

  • Average E10, 31st March is $1.17
  • Average ULP 91, 31st March is $1.20
  • Average ULP 95, 31st March is $1.35
  • Average ULP 98, 31st March is $1.41

According to our data Sydney E10, ULP91, ULP95 and 98 fuel prices experienced a price decrease over an average of 14 days, our recommendation to our E10, ULP 91, ULP 95 and ULP 98 drivers is to closely monitor the daily average retail price towards the end of this retail pricing cycle.

Diesel and Premium Diesel

Diesel fuel types started the month off with having the highest prices in the month of March also ending with cheaper retail fuel prices.

On 1st March the average retail Diesel price was $1.42 and the average Premium Diesel price was $1.45.

From 2nd March Diesel products have had a steady decrease in price during the whole month of March.

The biggest decrease in Diesel retail prices were from 16th March – 19th March where retail prices decreased 3 cents over three days (Diesel $1.37 – $1.34 and Premium Diesel $1.40 to $1.37).

The questions are now;

  • Will this curve follow through in the month of April?
  • When in April will the rapid increase of Diesel retail prices happen?

According to our data, average Diesel retail prices are almost at the lowest point since we started recording average fuel price data on 19th October, 2017. Back then the average Diesel retail price was $1.25 and $1.27 for Premium Diesel.

2018/2019 financial year: Average fuel prices in Australian capital cities

Here’s a breakdown of the average retail fuel price per litre in the capital cities across Australia for the 2018/2019 financial year (starting July 1, 2018 and ending June 30, 2019); helping Australian businesses to calculate their fuel tax credit claims.

Looking for regional towns and cities instead? Here’s the same average fuel price per litre for Australian regional towns and cities.

Letters to the editor from May

Each month we respond to positive and negative feedback collected from the past month. We rely on this feedback to better this site so please hit the feedback buttons at the bottom of each page where you think we can do better.

Here’s some of the feedback received in May.

Echuca: Can’t find any petrol prices in Echuca. Not happy and want 95. Can’t even get that not happy.

Thanks for letting us know. Fuel price monitoring at Echuca has been fixed. Hope that helps 🙂

very helpful THK U kindly.

Costco North Lakes: Just very helpful this page!

United Cairns North: Excellent site. Very helpful to show that other stations are cheaper than Coles Express and Woolworths with there 4 cents off rubbish con job.

You’re very welcome!

Chinchilla: Hiding something not to do it like always.

Thanks for letting us know. We are working on refresh issues affecting some Suburbs.

Metro Petroleum Tarro: Information over a month old.

Thanks for letting us know. We’re onto it.

Puma Myalup: I want tomorrow’s price at Puma Myalup.

Tomorrow’s price at all WA Stations is visible from 3:00pm AWST.

Camooweal: Supply a price in Camooweal.

Thanks for letting us know. We’re onto it.

Today I see that petrol price in Sydney is almost 20 cents per litre more than in Adelaide, and about 10 cents more than in Canberra, however, the latter 2 cities probably have greater freight costs to get the fuel than Sydney does.

There seems to be no-one or no organisation capable of exposing the cartel behaviour of petrol companies.

Could you please put on your website methods how consumers (or Fuel Price Australia) can help to prevent this non-competitive behaviour. Thanks

Thanks for asking. We’ll reach out to several related organisations to see what materials they can provide us.

Could you please talk to the media, and ask them to investigate how service stations in Mildura, Burnie, Wangaratta are able to sell petrol much cheaper than large capital cities.

Also, could you put on your website a section which indicate the freight cost of getting a litre of fuel from bulk storage point in each State to regional cities.

Thanks for asking. Happy to ask around! Is there a public dataset that lists the freight cost of getting a litre of fuel from bulk storage points to regional cities?

Coles Express Loganlea: Coles Express Loganlea is not on your list

United Loganlea: United Loganlea/Meadowbrook is not on your list.

We show the cheapest and most expensive in each City and Suburb. Until recently we also showed a Map displaying only cheap Stations, it’s likely the above Stations weren’t shown in Brisbane as they were not the cheapest Stations at that time.

Bamaga: Put in the price at Bamaga.

Thanks for letting us know. We’re on it.

great, I assume I can select grade of fuel

You can currently add your favourite City, Suburb and Station. Fuel grade is next on the list.

I request that there should not be fuel pricing cycles as there is no valid reason for them to exist. A genuine supply/demand pricing should prevail on a consistent basis with fairness to all sides of the equation.

Reach out to your local Government and let them know your thoughts.

Ultra Petroleum Mogo: Opening hours.

Caltex/Woolworths Urangan (Hervey Bay): Opening times

Vibe Port Kennedy: Hi, It would be good to have the trading hours for the stations as well

We’re working on it. Wherever possible we’re automating the population of Station details (including opening hours, fuel types, services and facilities, etc.) as they change over time.

We’ll reach out to Vibe Petroleum and see if they can provide us an up-to-date listing of Station details including facilities as we’ve started doing for several other Brands.

Liberty Grange Auto Care: Be up to date not two days old.

Wessel Petroleum Cooroy: Get today’s prices, not ones that are 2 weeks old.

Rochedale South: What good is a 18 hour fuel price? It’s the year 2019. These prices should be updated daily.

Here’s the thing, the listed price is correct, it’s just two days old; or 2 weeks old. We’d love to see Queensland fuel stations making daily price notifications but it’ll take time, especially where the fuel price reporting is not automated.

If you’re next at the above Stations ask if they’d consider making daily price notifications, even if that means simply confirming their current pricing. 🙂

Marla: Not helpful.

Agreed. We’ve populated all of the Suburbs in Australia assuming that official fuel prices are – or will be soon – available in all Australian States.

As soon as the SA State Government announces an official retail fuel price monitoring platform we’ll integrate it! In the interim let them know how unhelpful this situation is:

7-Eleven Cockburn Central: Diesel at 7-Eleven Cockburn Central.

Thanks for letting us know. We didn’t know there were separate Diesel fuel types; “Diesel” and “Brand Diesel”, “Premium Diesel” is different again. We’ve added support for “Brand Diesel” and 7-Eleven Cockburn Central and other Stations in WA offering “Brand Diesel” is now showing diesel prices.

Say cheap Tuesdays for pensioners trial? Permanently get 2c -4c off unleaded petrol for pensioners who are mostly NOT well off and struggle to undertake only short trips. Medical appointments are high in number in this age group! Thankyou

Reach out to your local Government and let them know your thoughts.

Newcastle: Lies

How so? Let us know in the comments.

United Taylors Lakes: Prices are wrong.

Unfortunately without an official retail fuel price monitoring platform in Victoria we are only dealing with scraps. Let your State Government know:

Onslow: Cost of diesel in onslow.

Thanks for letting us know. We’re on it.
