No f...ing fuel cycle on this occasion.  It is simple, less using cars so they tempt us with lower prices to fill up all our tanks, then movement around the area relaxed, more car usage and BINGO fuel prices increase.

I do believe it's one of those benefits paid by people who live in the big cities....

Not something that happens here - prices go up or down when the buy in price changes. Plus someone stills fills the car/ute for me here at the servo.... and they're one of the cheapest places around!

So the NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance has asked parents to drive children to and from school as part of the state government's plan to continue social distancing on public transport.
I call BS,
With fuel prices on the rise again, it's about tax revenue, not health.

Probably more like when you spend billions on a new rail line to the overpopulated NWern suburbs of Shitny you make the tunnels big enough to run full sized double level trains through.... ::)

But you’re probably right, we’ll be buzzing around in those little things before any Australian government provides a proper public transport network. ;)

My kids play ‘spoto’ with public busses in our region.
You win if you find one that doesn’t say “sorry I’m not in service” across the front.
I have never won a game in 5 years... :(

Why didn't you buy it from an Aussie seller?

I can understand if it wasn't available from one, but a lot of stuff is.

When I built my plane years ago, I bought aircraft parts from the States. Ordered over the phone at 2.30 Tuesday night and the DHL man would be on my doorstep at 7.00 o'clock Friday morning waiting for a signature . The same mob have an agent in Melbourne. Order on Tuesday over the phone and would be at least 2+ weeks before anything would arrive and stocks would be already in Melbourne (confirmed with the phone call).

This was approx 6 yrs ago and the USA Fiskars was around $60, delivered. Couldn't find one in Australia for less than $100, list price, no delivery.
