Something extremely suspicious has occurred with fuel prices in Cairns very recently.
When I filled up at our local United on 13.02.2019, U91 was 120.9/L whilst Puma and Caltex were around 124.9/L a few days ago, and Coles Express was around 130/L.
Today I saw that all the Coles Express, Shell, Caltex, Mobil, BP and Puma outlets were all 129.9/L and the United outlets were 128.9/L.
After introducing the first real competition in Cairns in June, 2017, it appears that United has rolled over and got into bed with the local cartel.
When United arrived, I said that if they were to leave tomorrow, the local cartel would be straight back to their old tricks the following day, but it appears to have happened without United leaving.
Looks like it is time to unleash the ACCC onto this disgusting price fixing scam.
Oops. I forgot to bring some teething rusks for them.
