RACQ accuses servos of double dipping


Queensland’s peak motoring body has accused petrol retailers of double-dipping on the high-end of the petrol cycle, as the state government works to get real-time fuel price monitoring off the ground.

The RACQ says after prices in southeast Queensland rose to four-year highs a few weeks ago, retailers have bypassed the cheap end of the price cycle and started to raise their prices again this week.

The motoring club says real-time fuel price monitoring, due to be trialled from December wouldn’t be a silver bullet against such rises, but it would give motorists a clearer idea about where the cheap fuel could still be found.
