Fuel prices for unleaded petrol have continued to decline for the 10th consecutive day, with the national capital city average now $2.16 per litre of 95RON unleaded, a figure not seen since 20 June 2022.

This sees the average for 91RON unleaded in the capitals drop below the important $2.00 mark, with 95RON a consistent $0.18 above the lower-octane option.

As of today, the national average (all states) for 91RON is $1.85. All octanes of unleaded fuel move in the same pricing pattern, so when 95RON drops, so does 91 and 98.



For example, 95RON in the capitals ranges from $2.13 in Adelaide to $2.37 in Perth (a $0.24 range), where diesel is between $2.29 in Perth and $2.42 in Hobart, a variation of only $0.13.

We have had 109 days under the 22.1-cent fuel excise cut with 73 days to go until that $0.22 rise heads straight to the pump price.
