I was in Penrith this afternoon when my fuel light came on. I drove along Castlereagh Road, noticing that 95 was around 185 cpl. Hmm... fuel is having a price spike again. I normally fill up at a servo on Richmond Road, Windsor Downs, near where I live, so I headed back there to fill up on my way home. It's a Woolworths/Caltex and is next door to a Coles/Shell which is always 4-5 cpl more. The Caltex was 145.7 while next door at Shell it was 189.9 and there were plenty of cars filling up at the Shell. I don't care about 3-4 cpl, but when there's about 45c difference per liter between adjoining servos, I wonder about fuel pricing. I checked just now. Yes, two adjoining servos with 45 cpl price differential. We deserve to be ripped off.

My experience, people who go to the much higher priced servo tend to be locked into that chain via contract or lease. Unless it's coming out of their own pocket directly, they will continue payingvthrough the nose. SHELL are by far the worst, first to put it up, last to bring it down, and always 4-10 cpl dearer than the Caltex around the corner? Thieves!

I donít know what Iím more appalled by, you being in the ĎRiff or the gall of a servo being 45cpl higher than its direct competition.

Why would anybody pay +45cpl when they could go next door?

The operator at the BP at Epping is clearly targeting the rich Chinese because his price is always at least 20cpl higher than servos a suburb away. A bit different to what youíre describing Zac but it makes me shake my head every time I drive past.
