Price of petrol in Australia August 2022

priceofpetrolThe price of petrol I paid during August 2022 averaged $1.85 for unleaded 91 Octane. Add up to 15c for 95 and 25c for 98. That said the lowest was $1.65 in mid August, needless to say I refilled all the vehicles. 

The price of diesel was around $2.10 the last time time looked and this the price does not fluctuate much compared to unleaded. Adblue was also priced at about $2 per litre.  

The former Australian government reduced the fuel exercise aka tax by 22 cents which has provided some relief but as prices world wide shows it will only delay the inevitable.  Since there is no change to the invasion in Europe prices are expected to remain high for some time. 

Note that fuel prices also vary according to area, the level of competition and a whole heap of other factors like shopping discounts, wars, world wide economics and so forth, however unreasonable high prices (relative to crude oil prices) is greed. Also note that the Octane level I post here represents Australian measurement which is different from those in other countries eg. US.

Apart from the actual prices I paid at the servo the websites I use to research the crude oil pricing are:
