Canberra's drivers have been ripped off at the petrol bowser for too long.
I've challenged Canberra's service stations to keep petrol prices on par with the Australian average price.
The ACT Government will set weekly average price targets (aligned to the national average) for them to meet to avoid government intervention.
We've taken a stand because Canberrans were not getting a fair go. And it's working.
Prices have fallen considerably and the gap between Canberra's average and those in Sydney and Melbourne has decreased significantly. In fact, Canberra had Australia's cheapest petrol.
It’s disappointing that it took the threat of drastic market intervention from the ACT Government for fuel companies to do the right thing and charge Canberra motorists a fair price. It shouldn’t take public pressure for local petrol stations to pass on wholesale price reductions.
