PANEL 1: FUEL 101

Many Queenslanders are feeling the pinch of rising fuel prices.

Why is it so expensive? What impact does war and conflict have on the price we pay at the bowser? Where does Australia source its fuel from? And how can we make each tank last longer?

RACQ’s Principal Economic and Affordability Specialist Dr Ian Jeffreys and Principal Technical Researcher Andrew Kirk were joined by resources and energy expert, Professor Robert Perrons from Queensland University of Technology to answer these questions and many more. Watch below.

PANEL 2: FUEL TAX

Every time you fill up, you’re paying tax. It’s called fuel excise.

Why do we pay it? What’s that money used for? And what’s going to happen to the excise as more electric vehicles replace petrol and diesel cars?

RACQ’s Head of Public Policy Dr Michael Kane sat down with the Club’s Principal Economic and Affordability Specialist Dr Ian Jeffreys to answer your fuel tax questions. Watch below.
