Brisbane motorists forking out the most for petrol

It has been revealed that Brisbane drivers are paying nine cents a litre more for petrol than Sydneysiders.

RACQ’s Monthly Fuel Price Report for March shows Brissy residents were slugged an average of 130 cents per litre for unleaded.

That was an increase of 1.9 cents on February’s average.


The RACQ’S Renee Smith said Brisbane service stations charged more than interstate capitals and 8.9 cents more per litre than those in Sydney.

She said “Brisbane’s often the dearest of the big capital cities and there’s no good reason for it”.

The averages paid by motorists for a litre of unleaded in March include in Brisbane $1.30, Sydney $1.21, Adelaide $1.23, Perth $1.29 and Melbourne $1.29.
