Yes $60 / year membership.
98.9 for E10 at the Coles Shell at Shellharbour. Before discount docket aswell.
So I had to go in an pick up my car finally, the mechanic is in Takanini.
$1.579 to fill up the Falcon with 91, can't recall the E10 fot the commodore but it was around $1.70
Filled up the diesel ute, 90.9
Filled up the farm car as well but that was at $1.619 in Pukekohe, to fill out fuel cans was around $38 not so long ago so I was pleased when it was only $28 this time.
Filled the Land Cruiser main tank for $95 on Saturday. So was around $1.30/litre.
NZD$172.9 in Upper Hutt NZ.
I found this article in Forbes. It was written in Aug '14. The guy predicted that cheap oil was on its way. He states the main contributing factors are;
- USA has ended a moratorium on allowing oil companies to seismic analyse continental shelf off of the southern Atlantic coast, where oil is believed to be plentiful and cheap to access. Essentially allowing access to vast untapped oil resources.
- Mexico is privatising their own oil production and are now contracting out access to their own 60 billion barrel reserves. They have state monopolised their oil for the last 75 years
If those two factors remain in continuum, low prices will be here for a few years yet.

The downside of the low oil price is that there are likely to be a lot of oil and gas workers in Australia and NZ out of work soon. Exploration will be wound down as the return on investment is not there anymore with the lower prices. Already some of the major oil and gas companies have had their share prices halved over the last few months.
119.7¢ for e85 at Bald Hills.
Finally dropped to just below $1 for E10/91 ULP a few weeks ago, but now it's jumped back up to over $1.30 already.. It was good while it lasted...
Anyone else notice that since there was media mention of investigations into price gouging in the industry some months ago, the petrol prices stopped fluctuating by the 20c or so that they used to, each week?
Spent 3 months in Alaska in 2013 (their summer) and the prices only ever fluctuated between $3.95 and $3.99 a gallon at most in that whole time!
I think it's suss that one servo in Lithgow sells at 1.09 and all the others are at 1.30 odd.
I also found it very suss that a few weeks ago servos 40km away at Katoomba were selling at 99.9 while servos in Lithgow didn't go below 1.20.
I also found it extremely suss that the servo selling at 1.09 today was called out in the local paper a few weeks ago for selling 10 cents higher than the already inflated Lithgow price.
Bring on the electric car so that we don't have to be held ransom to these ridiculous cartels.

I've normally shopped by the 91 price that's advertised on the signs outside servos here in NZ, they generally don't list higher octanes on the board. So while filling up at what I thought was a reasonably cheap station (91 was $NZ1.759) the other day I happened to glance at the 95 price I was filling up with for the first time since I-don't-know-when and was...uh...somewhat annoyed to discover it was $2.019. 26c/litre premium for 95 when I'd only ever noticed a 8c/litre gap in the past. We're being played for suckers over here.
$1.50 for bp98 this morning. It's going up n up again.
Friday 06/03/15 - In Emerald Qld the normal petrol had been 1.57 to farking dear and recently it was done to 1.21 which is a good price and today I think I saw 1.33 which is still good.
back up over $2L here again for 95
$1.12 here where i live, not too bad considering it was 1.60 a few months ago
