Fuel prices - Benalla and Euroa

Ms RYAN (Euroa) — I call on the Victorian government to support an investigation into high fuel prices in Benalla and Euroa. Over the past seven days Euroa residents paid an average of 118.5 cents a litre for unleaded fuel, while in Benalla people paid an average of 116.8 cents a litre. This has been a long-running and frustrating situation for locals, who feel they are being ripped off. Price differences are often explained by fuel transport costs, but this argument makes very little sense when the average in Wangaratta over the same period was 113 cents and in Wodonga people were paying just 101 cents. Even in Bairnsdale, some 31⁄2 hours from Melbourne, motorists are paying just over $1. The Victorian government should be helping people with cost-of-living pressures by throwing its weight behind an investigation.

Together we can make a difference
