If you’re a Brisbane, Sydney or Perth motorist, now is the ideal time to re-fuel before prices jump back up again within the coming week. Fuel prices are sitting at the 239.9cpl mark in Adelaide and Melbourne at the moment, with no reprieve in sight for another 1 to 3 weeks.
Trends are showing that prices are about to jump in Adelaide and Perth, so motorists should take advantage of the discount phase in their current fuel price cycles. Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney are due to follow suit, however it may be a week or two before we begin to see the first signs of any new price peaks.
Perth motorists, fill up now or expect to see fuel prices in the mid to high 220’s – the peak of the current price cycle is imminent – as it is in Adelaide. Brisbane and Sydney drivers will need to wait for at least a couple of weeks before the discounting phase of the cycle commences, while Melbourne motorists should see some discounting this time next week.
Make sure to fill up next week if you’re in Adelaide or Perth. Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane motorists will need to wait two to three weeks before the next low point in petrol prices. This week we also witnessed some extreme examples in wholesale price movements between petrol and diesel. This is a striking example of the volatility in the market that is created by current uncertainty in both supply and demand.
Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and Sydney motorists – fill up now, as more and more retailers are quickly increasing pump prices. Unfortunately for drivers in Melbourne, petrol prices are not expected to drop for around another 3 weeks – if not for the fuel excise relief, prices would be at a record high right now.
