"We think this can work."
Caltex manager speaking on subject of Fuel Watch.
Fuel Watch. I drive about 900km/week on my work commute. I fill up on Monday or Tuesday and top up on Wednesday, when petrol is at its cheapest. I'm always watching fuel.
With Fuel Watch it is thought that, as has happened in Perth, the deep troughs and highs in petrol prices will be smoothed out. People who fill when petrol is cheapest will be worse off.
I don't bother with the 4c/L saving from shopping dockets because on a $60 fill the saving isn't worth the effort. I object to paying a lot more for my groceries for the two leading supermarkets to turn the sale of groceries and petrol into an oligopoly*. I try to fill at an independent service station. The one where the soldier smiled at me is a good one....
