Diesel was in higher demand globally again this week, causing wholesale prices to push up while petrol wholesale prices eased very slightly. Overall however, there has been relative stability in wholesale prices and global spot prices for both petrol and diesel in the past months. During periods like this, we tend to see prices in regional areas remain stable, whereas capital cities remain volatile due to petrol price cycles.
