Christmas petrol prices consistently higher here
Service stations on the Peninsula consistently had the highest petrol prices on the Central Coast in the month leading up to Christmas.
Minimum daily fuel prices clearly show Peninsula service stations are consistently charging more per litre than those located in Gosford and Wyong, according to figures compiled by Mr David Abrahams of Hardys Bay.
Average price differences show even greater variation between Peninsula petrol prices and those from the other two locations.
Minimum price variations between the Peninsula and Gosford varied from six cents per litre up to 18 cents.
Peninsula's daily E10 minimum prices were never lower than those charged by Gosford service stations.
The minimum daily price difference between service stations on the Peninsula and those in Wyong ranged from three cents per litre up to 23 cents.
Again, Peninsula petrol stations consistently charged more.
Mr Abrahams used the NSW Government's Fair Trading Live Fuel Data Feed, a mandatory requirement for service station operators, to compare prices on a daily basis for Peninsula service stations against those in Gosford and Wyong.
