Police go undercover at petrol stations to catch drivers not paying

There are calls for the consumer watchdog to investigate why petrol prices in Sydney have taken a sudden hike just before Christmas.

The NRMA says recent cycles should have resulted in average unleaded prices falling to around $1.32 a litre but prices today are at least 12 cents dearer.

It says oil companies should be called on to explain why prices have gone up in time for the holidays.

  • Nothing happened and nothing ever will. This is "Corporate" Australia at its best doing what they are told and punishing its citizens. We are gone in this country and the Gov do not care as they are in the bed with everyone charging us hand over fist. Get used to it because it is not going to get any better. Just wait until you see carbon tax MK2 if people are stupid enough to vote these jokers back in.

  • We have heard it all a million times before. I thought Labor's highly paid useless "Petrol Commissioner" Joe Demassi was going to sort this blatant ripp-off 5 years ago??? What ever happened?
