LOGAN motorists are paying less for their fuel than many others in southeast Queensland.
RACQ spokeswoman Renee Smith said the cheapest fuel on Friday October 30 in the Logan area was $111.9 per litre at Marsden’s Caltex service station.
The cheapest fuel in the south east region at the time was $1.10 per litre in the Greater Brisbane region.
The figures backed up the findings from an online search by the Albert & Logan News. According to MotorMouth, Logan had four of the top-six cheapest prices on Wednesday October 28 and five of the top-six cheapest on Friday, while other research also shows Logan’s prices as being among the best in south east Queensland.
According to the RACQ’s Fair Price Today function, a ‘fair’ price on the Gold Coast and Brisbane north west on Friday October 30 was $1.14, while $1.12 was a fair price in Brisbane north east, south west and in Logan. Caltex Marsden’s price, however, was the cheapest price outside of the Greater Brisbane area.
Ms Smith said she put the low prices down to strong competition.
“Logan petrol prices are on that cheaper end,” she said.
“What we’ve found is that when there is greater competition, the prices tend to be cheaper and this appears to be the case in Logan.”
Ms Smith said drivers should make the most of the prices.
“It’s all part of what we call the price cycle,” Ms Smith said.
