Ok, gas is going up here in the States because Brandon shut down the oil pipeline from Canada, and restricted oil exploration and drilling in the US. Then instead of increasing oil production in the use, he went to Iran and Venezuela to compensate for not getting oil from Russia (great idea, Brandon, get oil from less than desirable nations instead of supporting US business).

So why is gas and diesel so expensive Down Under?

Sums it up perfectly mate. Note that the price for Australian fuels is actually set in Singapore. We can thank the Toxic Turd for that…him and his investment cronies.

That’s woeful mate, but at US$5.25 a gallon, it’s still cheaper than what we are paying here.

A US gallon is 3.8 litres which computes out to US$1.39 (rounded up) a litre. The exchange rate at the moment is AUD$1 is US$0.74, so that comes out at AUD$1.88 a litre. I’m paying anywhere between AUD$1.95 (US$1.44) to AUD$2.15 (US$1.59) a litre for diesel.

I can’t believe the greed of both grubimments and the oil companies, although our grubbiment has cut the fuel excise by 50% for 6 months.

huh...ours took 25cents per litre off the tax on petrol...for three months

and took a tiny bit off road user charges for diesels BUT you have to use up what you buy at discounted rate within 3 months


so the theiving huas still come out on top..... with a tax on fuel working out to around 45% of the pump price.....if pump price is $2.50 per litre now and was $1.50 a couple of years back...the government are still pocketing more per litre now than they were a couple of years ago....add in GST of 12.5cents in every dollar too. so I earn my wages which are taxed,then buy fuel which is taxed and pay GST tax at counter...3 slices of the pie go to government coffers...they want us to all go electric...but there isnt enough electricity to charge the vechiles if all were plugged in together....and the enviromental footprint of the darn things is more than my dirty old diesel anyway.....
