Adelaide petrol prices peaked to their highest level in a dozen years last week but there are still service stations selling well below today’s average ULP price.
The real-time fuel pricing feature on our myRAA app showed an average Adelaide ULP price of 170.3c/l on Monday afternoon.
However 16 outlets were still charging below a 150c/l, according to the price list on the myRAA app, which is free for all motorists to access.
A saving of greater than 20c/l means a difference of more than $10 when filling the tank of a typical family sedan.
RAA spokesman Mark Borlace said motorists who weren’t using an app to find the cheapest fuel prices were probably losing money at the pump.
“This is especially the case when prices begin to spike – like last week when some outlets went to 189.9c/l, the highest peak price we have seen since 2009,’’ he said.
“We surveyed 600 myRAA app users in July and found they were saving an average $28.10 a month – or $337.20 a year – by comparing prices charged at various service stations before filling up.’’
Mr Borlace said a record number of motorists accessed the real-time fuel pricing feature on myRAA app last month.
“Prices have been rising significantly this year and there’s no doubt this is putting pressure on household budgets,’’ he said.
We recently compiled a list of the cheapest fuel outlets based on the average price charged for ULP since the introduction of real-time fuel pricing scheme introduced by the State Government in March this year.
