Qld calls on ACCC to give fuel price data

October 09, 2017

Brisbane drivers are paying millions more a year for petrol than drivers in other state capitals.

Brisbane drivers are paying $50 million more a year for petrol than motorists in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

An Australian Competition and Consumer Commission report released on Monday revealed a 3.3 cents per litre price difference due to weak competition in Brisbane.

"The ACCC's report confirms Brisbane drivers' suspicions that they are paying too much for petrol, and that some local fuel retailers are enjoying high profit margins at their expense," ACCC chairman Rod Sims said.
