More petrol relief for motorists as 91RON unleaded hits a national average of $1.80 per litre, and 95RON drops to a capital city average of $2.08, a refreshing 7 per cent reduction from the height of $2.24 earlier this month.

Average prices have declined for three-weeks now, with the price spread between states also reducing.

The highest capital city price remains Canberra at $2.24 per litre, with Adelaide dropping down to $2.00 per litre, a 15 per cent drop on the South Australian peak of $2.35.

Diesel pricing has also reduced to a national average of $2.01 per litre.

Crude oil prices are also continuing a downward trend, with oil currently around US$95 per barrel against lower global consumer confidence and lessening demand.

The reduction comes with just two months left of the $0.22 fuel excise cut, which is set to end on 28 September 2022.

This hasn’t stopped motorists from trying to maximise their value, with many pooling discounts for additional savings.
