Motorists slugged by more petrol profiteering

COFFS Coast motorists may have paid too much for petrol during the Christmas holiday, says the NRMA.

Monitoring group FuelTrac compared petrol prices on Christmas Day and Boxing Day with those on the same days of last week to point out that petrol was more expensive then it should have been.

Petrol prices usually follow a cycle in which they peak on weekends and fall to a low on Tuesday and Wednesday.

While the price of unleaded petrol fell on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it did not hit the same lows as the previous week.

In Sydney on Christmas Day, petrol was sold at $1.365 three and a half cents higher than the same day last week.
