Price of petrol in Australia July 2023


Welcome to the final ‘price of petrol’ update! I’m expanding the monthly ‘price of petrol’ reports with some additional statistics for Australia. Starting next month you will be able to access the report!

The price of petrol I paid during July 2023 averaged $1.90 for unleaded 91 Octane. Add up to 15c for 95 or 25c for 98. The price for petrol varied many times during the month. The first two weeks costed less than $1.70 then leaped to $2.10 by the end of the month. 

The price of diesel was around $2.00 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.  

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:
