I‘m concerned our petrol prices are generally more expensive than what our metropolitan counterparts pay.
Fuel prices are one of the main trending concerns that you as constituents raise with me; that regional bowser prices in regions like Capricornia are regularly higher than our city peers even though the fuel ship might dock close to home.
The Federal Coalition Government has directed the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to conduct four major investigations a year into specific local fuel markets.
I have already written to the ACCC urging them to bring their investigative team to Central Queensland.
It’s time to fight for fairer fuel prices, but I need your help.
I want you to join this community petition to call on the ACCC to investigate the fuel disparity we experience here in Capricornia.
Your voice is vital.
