Coffs Coast motorists ripped off at the bowser again

OTHER regional centres in the area experienced a drop in the price of fuel last week, why didn't the Coffs Coast?

Weekly comparison on the NRMA's Buster Bowser website shows other towns in Northern NSW enjoyed a small decrease in the price of fuel but Coffs Harbour and Woolgoolga motorists had to put up with the same high prices.

The website said in the week ending today, fuel prices in Lismore, Grafton, Buladelah, Kempsey and Port Macquarie all dropped.

In Coffs Harbour and Woolgoolga the prices stayed the same.

It wasn't a significant drop but local motorists are yearning for some drop.

Especially when fuel prices in Sydney last week dropped by an average 7.4 cents a litre.

The price drops in Lismore and Grafton were only 0.2 cents per litre but at least it's something.

Kempsey and Buladelah were displaying prices half a cent per litre cheaper while Port Macquarie motorists enjoyed having to pay a full cent less at the bowser.

The NRMA website compares the fuel prices of 52 regional centres across the state (including metropolitan Sydney).
Coffs Harbour was ranked 41st last week. A failure by service station operators to pass on any price reduction saw it slip to 44th.

Woolgoolga dropped from 42nd spot to 46th.

The Advocate's campaign to see lower fuel prices continues.
