    That monkey is looking too far out of his backyard. Singapore has the primary impact on our markets and if the below stats are to be believed it's a pretty steep climb:

    OPEC have slowed production which is Singapore's primary source of import (Middle East).

    You are spot on VS 5.0 any living finance/product market with today's technology is volatile and unpredictable like a good dose of mother nature :)

    I know a couple of people who are always complaining about the price of fuel, and I find their bitching and moaning really quite hilarious.
    The hilarious part for me is that these same people will without any hesitation :
    # Pay $5 or more for a cup of some café latte crap they call coffee
    # Pay $3 or more for a 600ml carton of flavoured milk or a bottle of coke
    # Pay $100 for a 700ml bottle of grog
    When you look at it that way, even at $1.80 a litre fuel isn't bad value
    I know I get more enjoyment out of spending $60 on a tank of fuel for my 1 Tonner than spending it on some crap tasting coffee

    Yeah. Although a tank of fuel is now costing around 120-130 bucks. Some people like Monstar for example, would use a few tanks a week at times. Kind of makes that cup of coffee seem pretty cheap. Oh, and Coles Servo espresso is pretty hard to beat at $1 a cup.
    Point is, fuel is a big part of the average drivers weekly budget. Not so latte.

    i just added up sums and as a family we clocked up $800 fuel useage last month

    worst is main car used is a lpg dual fuel Ve for work duties and L plater now, diesel prices are high now too was $200 to fill misses Prado ouch.

    E85 ute doesn't get driven much but E85 was only $1.29, maybe that will come back in to favour as its made here not imported Monstar will be happy

    Crypto is in a dive this very second. Good time to buy up, my hot long term tip is VEN.

    I always have two minds on fuel. Since I was a kid it's only increased on average 300%, whereas most other necessities average 900% (bread, milk, eggs, etc.. ). But then as mentioned fuel kicks the hip pocket of the vast majority of our population pretty hard and is an important part of our economy going round and round.

    In Queensland we used to see the advertised price for e10 (and wonder who uses that stuff anyway) then mentally add 16 cents per litre for the price of the 98 ron that we actually buy for one of our cars.
    More recently we have to add 20 cents to the advertised price.

    We put 91ron in the VX.

    4 years ago i was driving 1000km a week. I was on gas and it was still costing me $40 a day. Gas in Tas reached $1.05 a litre when China and Japan had a cold winter driving up demand a few years back.

    Do any servo's around the country actually advertise 95/98?
    I know of only one in Melbourne that advertises the price of 95...

    I use E85, or, more often, Caltex Flexfuel. I had a tank of United E85 and I noticed that the car had to crank for about 5 seconds before it would start when it was cold. It was fine all other times. I just filled it with the Caltex and it starts great all the time hot or cold. Dunno why that would be.
    Also I'm in the NRMA here in NSW. They just brought out a bunch of benefits for members called NRMA Blue. This includes a discount on fuel from 3 to 5 cents per litre on fuel from Caltex. I thought "this is fantastic" but when I went to use it I got no discount! The brochure clearly says Discount on 'all types of fuel'. WTF!!! I rang them and the operator couldn't tell me!
    They even had the nerve to charge me an extra 1c on the docket!
    For using a fuel that is locally made, from renewable resources and low emissions, I get penalized!
    POOR SHOW NRMA AND CALTEX!!!

    I have just returned from outback Queensland, and the fuel there, avg $1.75 for 98, is cheaper than here on the coast just north of Sydney.
    But what I did notice was that my consumption on Puma 98 was worst. 9.3l/100km increased to 9.9, then reduced back to 9.4 when I got back to using BP south of Brisbane.

    Eflex in einter becomes more like 70/30 mix that's why it starts better also better economy but I run the United as tuned for 85
