For the first time in a few months we are seeing petrol attracting premium over diesel. This will be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks as we start to see many full schedules of many airlines help keep the prices up for crude oils. In the meantime, for motorists in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney now is a great time to fill up!
