Petrol is $1.55 a litre yet the Aussie Dollar is over $1.00 US and Oil Is $99 a barrel.

Last time we paid this much the Aussie dollar was around 70 US cents and oil was $145 a barrel, we should be paying about 90 cents a litre for petrol.

The government keeps saying its based soley on world pricing so it should be right down.

Anyone know why we are being ripped off and the motoring bodies like the RAA are out to lunch?
Theyre normally getting their name out on the news by now.

Just imagine how wonderfully quiet the roads will be when the fuel price actually gets high ENOUGH.

Petrol is STILL cheaper than water...

the sooner it gets expensive enough to get out of reach of the pesky peasants, we can all enjoy our supercars porperly, on clear roads.
