Coffs servos absorb price rise, but still charge dearer
UNLEADED petrol prices rose slightly across NSW over the past week, but there was no recorded hike on the Coffs Coast.
The NRMA says while this may sound good in some respects, it isn't.
Its Bowser Buster fuel watch found the average price per litre in Coffs Harbour remained unchanged at 152.1 cents/litre.
That figure was 9.7 cents/litre dearer than Grafton and six cents/litre dearer than Kempsey.
In Woolgoolga, motorists were reportedly slugged an average of 152.8/litre for unleaded.
"Average prices did go up 0.8 cents per litre across the state so it is a relief that they didn't go up in Coffs Harbour," an NRMA spokesman said.
"Unfortunately, prices haven't moved at all throughout the week.
"Coffs Harbour is still ranked 44th at 152.1 for unleaded out of the 52 locations.
"It remains to be seen if prices go up in Coffs over the next few weeks as they will across the state.
"If prices remain the same in Coffs over the next few weeks and other centres increase as expected, it is a win of sorts for motorists as it means Coffs prices will be 'coming back to the field'.
"The gap is still there between Grafton and Kempsey though, which is difficult to justify," the NRMA said.
