Petrol prices set to go up again

The RACQ has warned great deals on offer for unleaded petrol on the Gold Coast won’t last, and has urged motorists to fill up their tanks now.

The average price of ULP locally is $1.45 a litre according to Motormouth.

RACQ spokesperson Renee Smith said prices wouldn’t stay low for long.


“Our advice is to fill up now, with the cheap phase of the petrol price cycle expected to end at any time,” Ms Smith said.

“These are the cheapest prices we’ve seen so far this year. Many retailers in the south east are currently selling ULP below wholesale price, so we encourage motorists to purchase without delay.”

The warning comes after we were recently forced to pay up around the $1.60 mark a few weeks back.
