Fuel prices continue to be up to 35 cents higher

Peninsula fuel prices have been up to 35 cents per litre higher than those charged in nearby Kariong, West Gosford, Erina and Kincumber in recent weeks.

At the time of going to press, the cheapest price for Ethanol 94 (E10) on the Central Coast was 115.9 cents per litre at the Wadalba 7-Eleven and United North Wyong.

The most expensive price for Ethanol 94 was 148.9 at BP Woy Woy with Coles Express Umina and Woy Woy not far behind at 148.4 cents per litre.

The United Petroleum station was charging only 124.7 cents per litre.

Metro West Gosford was charging only 116.9 cents per litre for its Ethanol 94 on Wednesday, March 6.

Most other West Gosford and Kariong outlets had their pumps set at 124-125.9 cents per litre.

Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks said she continued to gather petitions from locals who wished to pass on their concerns about fuel prices to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

Ms Wicks said she regularly contacted the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to inform it that the Peninsula's petrol prices appeared at odds with the rest of the Central Coast region.

"I am preparing to write to them again as constituents have been calling with their concerns," she said.

According to Ms Wicks, the Commission has authority to look into areas where there were pricing discrepancies but has not examined the Peninsula as yet.

The petrol pricing petition is available from Ms Wicks' office and online.

She said she was aware that inflated fuel prices on the Peninsula made it especially challenging for elderly residents on restricted licenses.
