AANT calls for fuel retailers to decrease prices ahead of Christmas

Fuel prices darwin northern territory gouging christmas
The AANT is concerned that a decrease in the fuel terminal gate price is not being passed on to consumers at the retail pump. While unleaded and diesel retail prices have stayed the same in Darwin, the gap between these prices and the fuel’s purchase price has widened.
 
AANT’s CEO Anthony Hill said “There is a gap of 15 cents between what fuel retailers are paying for unleaded and diesel fuel and what they are selling it for. Fuel retailers have had a good run, it is now time for them to decrease the price of fuel ahead of Christmas.”
 
Fuel to the Northern Territory mostly comes from Singapore through Darwin’s fuel terminal. The price of fuel at the terminal gate is usually within about 10 cents of the price that the Darwin consumer receives. Fuel prices gradually increase the further away from Darwin the fuel retailer is, with prices currently reaching well over $2.00 per litre in some remote communities.
 
AANT reminds customers to shop around using the MyFuelNT app. Choosing the fuel retailers that provide the cheapest fuel is the best way to keep fuel prices down.
 
Anthony Hill said that “Christmas is a time when many people have a lot of other expenses. It would be great if fuel retailers can spread some ‘Christmas cheer’ and pass on savings to customers”.
