the price of petrol in Oz jumped to 77.9 cents per
litre, because our petrol companies charge the 'going world rate' even if
the stuff is our own.
State & Federal Taxes= 43.4 CPL 56% of the total,
Oil Company Revenue= 32.0 CPL 41% of the total,
Dealer margin = 02.5 CPL 3.o% of the total.
Total 77.9 CPL 100%
I used to fill up my Holden Commodore for $53.78 in July, in August I get to
pay $59.25, whoopee lucky eh?
If I sound a bit exasperated it's because I bloody well am! Sorry if I have
offended any one, but paying taxes is low on my list of fun things to do.
Do our prices compare well or badly compared to yours?
