What to Expect in the Coming Weeks

Motorists are being urged to fill up as fuel prices are expected to rise in the coming days due to several factors, including the already strained supply chain because of the pandemic and the ongoing war in Ukraine.

Australian refiners Viva Energy (operating under the Shell brand) and Ampol (Caltex and StarCard brands) have already stopped buying Russian crude oil, joining a growing number of companies who ceased trade ties with Russia following its invasion of Ukraine. 

Both companies revealed that they source crude from many different countries, and that they would be able to keep up with supplies as the Australian transport energy market was not overly reliant on Russian crude.

Still, they acknowledge the fact that the current international sanctions have been putting pressure on global oil prices and this is already affecting Australian retail fuel prices.

Meanwhile, Brisbane’s fuel prices are still the cheapest in the Southeast Queensland region. 

“At the moment, the expensive sites are mainly around Brisbane’s inner north, Mango Hill, Caboolture, and Acacia Ridge, as well as around the northern parts of the Gold Coast. RACQ spokesperson Kate Leonard-Jones said earlier in February. 

Ms Jones said if price hike is sustained, it’s likely petrol could surpass 200 cpl in March or April 2022.
