It said the annual fuel bill of families in Sydney's west could skyrocket by up to $2000 a vehicle, if ongoing tension in the Middle East continues to force oil prices up. The NRMA also called on the Federal Government to develop a strategy to deal with Australia's dependence on imported oil, saying motorists are "sitting ducks" when it comes to fuel prices.
NRMA president Wendy Machin said households should be bracing themselves.
"A couple of years ago we would have said $2 was alarmist, but in mid-2008 prices were close to $1.70 and 18 months before it was $1.10, a jump of 60c in that short time.
"At the moment $1.50 is fairly average at the bowser and we have this strong Aussie dollar well on parity or above that.

What difference does it make, I need fuel, I use fuel, I fill up again, no way I can not.

so fuel going up by 33% will add $2000 to the average petrol bill, what a load of .......

The average person doesnt burn $6000 a year. Sure there are some people that do, but unless you are a tradey that goes from job to job it sounds ridiculous.

People have to drive across Melb or Sydney everyday just to go to work?, that's lunacy at the extreme, or are we factoring in sunday drives and holidays as well?.
