Ipswich bowsers a good place to be during December

IPSWICH was the second cheapest place in Queensland to buy petrol for the month of December.

The RACQ said its latest fuel price report showed Ipswich and Warwick were the only regional centres to sell cheaper unleaded petrol than Brisbane.

Ipswich's average price throughout December 2012 was 140.5 cents per litre - 1.6 cents cheaper than the previous month.

Warwick was the cheapest at 139.4 - more than two cents cheaper than Brisbane, which averaged 141.6.

RACQ spokesman Michael Roth said most centres benefited from a price drop in December, however the joy could be short-lived.

"The price of oil is likely to increase in January as demand for fuel globally is expected to remain stable or possibly strengthen," Mr Roth said.

"This may push up the average retail price in Brisbane, which would be followed by a price increase in the regions."

"This may push up the average retail price in Brisbane, which would be followed by a price increase in the regions."

Ipswich's average diesel price for December dropped by 2.5 cents from the previous month to be 147.9.
