It would make perfect sense for them all to increase rates and use the higher fuel costs as the excuse, but with so much competition I wouldn't hold my breath. They will just drivers wear the extra costs. It makes no difference to them.

So more like, time to learn how to siphon petrol from other cars.

or buy a hybrid Camry like all of the airport dwelling ex-cab drivers. Even though my car is diesel, the price has increased markedly.

Anyway I'm offering tips re: fuel prices.

Put your plates on with Velcro find another car exactly or very similar to yours. Steal the plates and put Velcro on those as well, this makes it easy to exchange around the corner before and after the fuel drive off.

On a more serious note I was filling up the other night and the guy next to me filling up was acting all sus and nervous, I went into pay and I told the attendant that guy is sus as I reckon his gonna take off without paying, and within 30 seconds bam he was in the car and out the driveway. Gone!

I filled up with 7-Eleven 98UL at $1.33 a litre just last Sunday. At the same time I filled up a 20 litre jerry can and my girlfriends car. I currently have 3 accounts locked with 91UL at $1.33 a litre. While this is still more expensive than usual, it's still a lot cheaper then $1.45.

Ya'll need to learn the 7-Eleven app. Plenty of savings to be had.
