An Easter petrol price rise will make motorists cross | Illawarra Mercury

Petrol prices could be on the way up just in time for the school holidays – but it’s not an attempt at price gouging, according to the NRMA.

Peter Khoury from the motoring group said the Sydney market was at at the bottom of the price cycle and expected a sudden overnight surge of as much as 14 cents a litre for unleaded at some stage over the next few days.

Mr Khoury said prices in the Illawarra wouldn’t rise so dramatically as the average price was already around seven cents higher than Sydney.

As of Wednesday afternoon the average price for regular unleaded in the Illawarra was 143 cents, though a Port Kembla service station was selling it as low as 132.6 cents.

Mr Khoury said the likely price rise – which could climb to as much as 150 cents a litre – will be far less “dramatic”.
