Where to find the cheapest fuel in your town
PETROL in Australia has been causing significant hip-pocket pain for motorists this year with prices at a long term high for the past few months but the cost of filling up is starting to drop around the country, giving regional drivers hope of some relief.
According to Fuel Check NSW trends show today's average fuel price for unleaded is 135.6 cents, but the range at different bowsers could be as much as 49.7 cents across the state.
Up the road at the Gold Coast petrol prices average at 124.8 and 132.4 at Sydney (according to MotorMouth), but while prices may have dropped a few cents on the Northern Rivers prices are still around 20-30 cents per litre more than metro areas.
According to the state government's fuelcheck website, here are the cheapest spots to fill up in your town (prices correct at 10am on Monday November 19):
United Petroleum Lismore, 16 Ballina Rd
Caltex East Ballina, 30 Links Av
