A petrol reprieve on Coast

CAMPAIGNING with the NRMA to force service station companies to lower the price of fuel in Coffs Harbour, the Advocate is pleased to have seen the local average price of unleaded petrol dip below other Mid North Coast centres.

After highlighting the huge disparity we have faced at the bowser compared to 52 other NSW locations, we this week saw Coffs Harbour's best petrol price ranking to date.

Jumping 23 places up the NRMA Bowser Buster table is a vast improvement on having the second most expensive fuel in NSW.

The average price of unleaded stood at 143.9 cents per litre in Coffs Harbour for the week ending July 1 and it's hoped the trend continues when the NRMA releases its latest figures on Monday.

Coffs Harbour was noticeably cheaper than Grafton, Kempsey, Port Macquarie and Taree trailing only Wauchope and Bulahdelah as the cheapest unleaded fuel on the Mid North Coast - eight cents dearer than Sydney.

"It's time we brought back more competition to the fuel market on the North Coast," said NRMA president Wendy Machin.

Ms Machin said with average prices around $1.50 for no good reason, government legislation forcing oil companies to advertise all fuel prices on their display boards would increase competition in the market.

This would also force Coles and Woolworths-aligned servos to display the real cost of fuel at the bowser and not just shopper docket discount prices.
