Went to fill up with diesel today and found the price had risen to $1.79.9 per litre in Dubbo. The price of Unleaded is $1.55.9 so that means a whopping $0.24 difference, which I find absolutely imorral, as there are crooks out there, won't name them in case they want to get greedier and sue me, who are making billions more out of ripping off customers at the bowswer.
How can they explain such high rises in diesel and not in Unleaded, as it has to be guaged by the price per barrel, or so we are lead to believe, so why if that's the case hasn't unleaded gone up as much?
The NRMA is very quiet in their absence of voice on this issue, so are the opposition (State and Federal) and anyone who matters.
Diesel is far less pollutant than that of unleaded, recently an article on TV had that as part of a story, found more facts on that issue on the internet, so why then aren't the idiots in power holding the criminals who are raping our pockets dry accountable for price rises that are not justifiable?
How can Queensland be $0.64 a litre cheaper than NSW, someone deserves gaol on this issue, as it's not only injust but criminal in the least.
I won't stop here, letters are being written to the slack pollies who we pay (so they can have holidays and pensions on us) who do nothing for us, and ok, it won't do a damn bit of good, but someone has to start somewhere.
Get real, (Politicians, NRMA, and Oil companies), bring down the price of diesel to be at least on par with Unleaded, as it was cheaper in the 70's and early 80's, why has it risen above, and by so much in the 90's and 00's?
those of us who live over the Great Divide, we must constantly endure
the prices of fuel at anything up to 20c more than that of those in the
One must ask this, how can that be justified when only recently
it was written in the newspapers that it cost up to 3c a litre to cart
it out here, well, what happens with the other 17c we are charged on
top of that.
Instance: when on the news and listening to the
hardships of those poor city folk who are paying $1.39 to a $1.43 a
litre (depends I suppose on the game of the oil companies why there is
so much difference there, but when you see what we are paying for the
same fuel, $1.48 to a $1.52 a litre, take 3c a litre off that....heck,
I thought I was bad a math.
I saw Deisel on the same program at $1.52, we at that same time are paying $1.67 a litre, and the President of the NRMA had the hide to tell me the gaff it depends on what price the station can buy it at. What, can't he see its such a wide gap; what happens to the price it's offered at in the city, aren't we good enough out here to expect the same price for the same thing? Obviously not!
It time the ACCC "WAS" given the right to take on the Oil companies and the State and Federal Governments and stop the poor motorists from being ripped off.
All has come to point where disparity of pricing from coast to inland was brought to a head, and given to us at the same rate those in the city enjoy. We don't get cheap Tuesdays, not like the city, we have the high prices all the time.
Oh, and to finish off, remember Wran, the 3X3 he brought in, well, why is that still going, it was meant to go for 3 years, Wran was on power from 1976 to 1986, it's now 22 years after and we are still paying for it. Oh, and in case the Liberals want to claim the Labour govt is out of touch here, the Liberals were in Power with Greiner, so why didn't he stop the 3X3. Of course, there are other taxes, one has to ask what happens to them, our roads are that crappy.
All these thoughts are my own, some fact taken from printed media and from broadcast media, the rest from looking and learning and taking notice of what goes on around me. Oh, and yes, I did live on the coast for the better part of my life until 7 years ago, now I know how the country folk live, those on the coastal fringe want to see what disparity exists in living standards from there to here.
