The Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy Dr Anthony Lynham took action last week on behalf of the Warwick community and wrote to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to seek an investigation into why fuel prices in Warwick are amongst some of the highest in the State.
Joel Richters congratulated the Minister on his action. “It’s unexplainable why fuel prices are remaining so high here in Warwick, while the rest of the State benefits from the lower international oil prices”.
“A 30 cent variance between the cheapest and the most expensive fuel is baffling. While Queenslanders are hitting the road to support businesses, local fuel retailers are holding them back.
“While Queensland unites and recovers from this pandemic we need businesses that are prepared to support the recovery.
“The ACCC will hopefully investigate the local fuel prices with a new light thanks to the Queensland Government’s fuel price reporting trial.
“Residents and travellers to Warwick should be able to use their buying power to support businesses doing the right thing during the recovery.” said Joel Richters.
