Keeping an eye on fuel prices The RACT has been carefully monitoring fuel prices as international demand for oil rises with resultant pressure on retail petrol prices. Recovering inter national economies, the cr isis in Egypt, the Gulf and Libya, and a very cold European winter have all been cited as reasons for the rise in world oil prices. Relative to Sydney and Melbourne, Tasmanian prices were w ithin an acceptable range over much of January and February. On past occasions the RACT has been highly critical of local prices, but given the international price pressure, Tasmanian prices in the first two months of the year compared favourably with Sydney and Melbour ne. In fact, on some occasions, some Tasmanian prices were lower than some Sydney prices. To keep an eye on fuel prices, both locally and internationally, go to the R ACT’s Fuel Watch page on our website. Apart from our own Fuel Watch program, readers will find links to many useful sites that explain what is happening with fuel prices, and why. www.ract.com.au The enthusiast intent on driving with skill, pride and perfection One who is complacent and only concerned with getting from A to B?
