COST: App to give best petrol bowser prices

Check out petrol prices with a free government app called FuelCheck.
On the app, Urbenville was listed in the most expensive areas for petrol this year at $169.9 a litre while the cheapest petrol was in Villawood, Sydney at $125.17 a litre
The app has been downloaded more than 1.5 million times.
Minister for Digital and Customer Service Victor Dominello said there was often a more than a 20% gap in prices between service stations.
In the country, distances travelled for suppliers plays a factor in these prices.
The app allows users to save their favourite stations and features a trends page showing the cheapest day of the week to fill up and the day’s price range.
This is useful is you have a choice of petrol stations such as in Kyogle or Casino. Although the app showed Kyogle petrol stations, it didn’t feature the prices.
Prices listed for unleaded petrol in Casino on the FuelCheck app on November 4.
Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation Kevin Anderson said officers from the Consumer Protection Investigation Unit travelled around the state comparing the price shown in the app with the price advertised at the service station.
“This app will make sure people are getting a fair price at the bowser. We are actively making sure this happens carrying out more than 900 inspections and issuing official warnings to traders who were doing the wrong thing,” Mr Anderson said.
“If the price at the pump doesn’t match the price on the app, drivers can report this to NSW Fair Trading, and we will make sure operators are giving a fair price on fuel.”
