In Labrador, 7-Eleven on the Gold Coast Highway was offering Unleaded 91 for 125.9 cpl, while across the road Caltex had already hiked up its price to 165.9 cpl.

It was a similar case in Molendinar as Freedom on Olsen Ave sat at 125.9 cpl, compared to Coles Express at 165.9 cpl.

An RACQ spokeswoman said 45 per cent of Gold Coast petrol prices has jacked up prices to over 160 cpl.

She recommended drivers fill up if they see fuel for 134 cpl or less.
