Fuel prices expected to fall in the ACT

Share Canberra's trusted news:

WHILE Canberra’s fuel prices haven’t dropped as far as other Australian cities, experts predict that it will drop over the next few weeks.

A comparethemarket.com.au report says motorists can expect petrol prices to fall across most of the country into the Easter weekend – with the only exception being Perth, where motorists can expect to see prices rise this week.

While Canberra took the position for the most expensive petrol in the country over the March quarter, with motorists paying 143 cents per litre, on average, petrol prices in the ACT have been falling slowly over the past two months – from 146 cents per litre to 133 cents per litre on average – but won’t drop much lower, according to the report.

On Monday, the suburbs where the cheapest petrol could be found were Giralang and Nicholls, each at 122 cents per litre on average.
