Good time to fuel up as prices plummet

IPSWICH motorists were greeted with a rare and pleasant surprise as they stopped at the bowser today.

The city followed the trend seen across south-east Queensland this week, with unleaded prices dropping below $1.10 per litre.

The major services stations across Ipswich were selling regular unleaded at either 108.9 or 109.9 this morning.

The RACQ is urging motorists to take advantage of the low prices while they last.

RACQ spokesperson Renee Smith said it was week six of the cycle, and unleaded petrol at most service stations was selling at below the wholesale price.

"While the price cycle is even more unpredictable than usual, it's currently spelling good news for motorists wanting to save money at the pump," Ms Smith says.

"After two failed price hikes in the past fortnight, average ULP prices have now fallen several cents per litre below wholesale."

"Motorists wanting to save money should fill up without hesitation as we know these cheap prices won't last."

ULP averages:

  • Brisbane 111.5 cpl (Cheapest ULP average in Queensland)
  • Gold Coast 111.5cpl (Cheapest ULP average in Queensland)
  • Sunshine Coast 117.1cpl.
