Brisbane’s eye-watering petrol prices are expected to get even higher, with prices forecast to tip over $2 in coming days.
Fuel prices could soon reach a staggering $2 per litre in Brisbane and South East Queensland, with one service station already “cracking the figure”.
Petrol stations at Chermside, Geebung, Aspley and Brisbane Airport are currently charging just under $1.97 for unleaded 91 but Stradbroke Island motorists are already forking out more than $2.00 per litre.

The price hike is due to political tensions in Europe and the Middle East putting pressure on Queensland’s fuel supply, with South East motorists advised to start “shopping around” before stopping at the servo.
Compare the Market spokesperson Sarah Orr said although Brisbane is experiencing record prices, there are large price disparities between some retailers.
“We are seeing some record prices in Brisbane this week with a number of retailers pricing unleaded 91 just below $1.97,” Ms Orr said.
“While some of the prices are quite startling there are some big disparities between stations with the current Brisbane average sitting at $1.70.
“There is a 45 cent difference between cheapest and most expensive on the Brisbane market today. That’s a saving of about $23 to fill a 50-litre tank.”
“If you’re not desperate, it is worth shopping around to see if you could find a better deal on your way to work or another destination.”
