Journeys : August September 2009
In our community Fuel price monitoring goes five days T he new, expanded fuel monitoring page on our website is now up and running. Go to www.ract.com.au and click on the link and you will be able to check fuel prices updated five days a week – Monday to Friday. Latest prices are posted at 4 pm each day. Co-funding from the Tasmanian Government has allowed the RACT to increase our once-weekly snapshot into a much more comprehensive fuel price monitoring program. It means Tasmanians now enjoy access to pricing information that is unavailable to many other Australian motorists. The partnership with the State Government will continue for the next two years, when it will be re-assessed. The RACT’s new site covers most of the state and tracks fuel prices at 140 outlets. Designed as a public service for Tasmanian motorists, the fuel monitoring program responds to membership sentiment over a number of years that there needed to be more transparency of fuel prices in Tasmania. RACT products and services, including roadside, travel and insurance. Here’s help in Hobart R The customer entrance to the branch is off Patrick Street, with onsite parking, right next to the RACT’s new headquarters building site on the corner of Murray and Patrick Streets. Just look for the super-sized ‘Help when you need it most’ arrow – we’ll see you soon ! 6 August / September 09 Our upgraded program will provide consumers with more information on which to make informed choices. “It has been a complex project to undertake,” the RACT’s Group Chief Executive, Greg Goodman says. “We urge Tasmanians to use the site so that we and the Government can feel confident about continuing to fund it in the years ahead.” Cheapest prices aren’t the only consideration. Many motorists prefer outlets that offer full driveway service, and these are indicated at www.ract.com.au. You should always be prepared to pay a few cents more for this service. One of the issues related to the introduction of basic refuelling stops is that simple car maintenance can become overlooked, resulting in an unexpected breakdown. The range of information on our website gives you the details you need to make your choice. Tribute – Clive Sherry Honorary Life Member and former RACT President, Clive Sherry.
