    It is sad that I lost so much when the 19-year-old covid epidemic started arriving from home to my beloved car.

    Could be taxation and/or petrol stations trying to collect as much cash as they can to ford the storm.

    Same in Sydney. $1.62 on Northern Beaches for E94, down to below $0.90 at one servo in Greenacre. WTF?
    I don't live near Greenacre.

    You know how to read Cyrilic or used a translator? :D

    Is not so hard to read, but geezers, the As and Os are perhaps the worse to learn.

    Petrol has come down 25c/L around my way but then the government has put the whole industry on notice, sort our the pricing or expect regulation. As it is there is regulation coming in the wholesale market because of the monopoly situation the big 3 have over the small players and the total rip off pricing on premiums fuels. Government estimates they are ripping people off by a good 20c/L.

    Our prices in the USA, where I live, is about $1.43 to $1.68 USDs per Gallon (dive that by 3.8 to get per litre).

    If only the neo-cons in Aus would adopt the same approach instead of shrugging their shoulders claiming "there is nothing we can do".

    It’s a ******* conspiracy I tell you! You can find out exactly how much they are ripping us off by from looking at the wholesale price of petrol on the Australian petroleum institute website! It’s below a dollar a litre now! Why don’t they put this **** on the news. Because there would be anarchy, that’s why!

    Canada use Imperial Gallons, we do not, just "US" Gallons (3.8 Lt per Gl).

    Can get confusing when I talk to Canadians as far measurements. Funny is, the rail systen, the distance between rails is different. On some places on the north side of the USA, railways might have 3 rails to acomodate Canuk trains. The US has and archaic rail system, while the rest of the world went to a newer one, on that aspect, we are super way behind the power curve. That is why we do not have High Speed Rail, the tracks are too narrow.

    Not sure, but they play 20 man Hockey... no wonder is a cluster fück.

    Joke aside, I might have to search on that because I am not much of a sport fan (except motorsports), but they seem not too big on Football of any kind.

    With the price of a barrel of oil now down to around USD$33 you shouldn't be paying that much.
    Adelaide price for ULP91 is between 0.95 and 0.99 c/l

    I was told that Fuel profits are not that big on a petrol station. The money is when you go inside and buy their junkets. I understand on why the prices is bothersome, but need to consider other virables. Have anybody stopped at a fuel statation and asked why (prices)?
