There’s good news for drivers this week, with Nowra’s petrol prices ranked cheapest in regional NSW.
According to the NRMA’s weekly fuel report, Nowra was the cheapest place in regional NSW to fill up last week. The average price for regular unleaded fuel across the town was 123.6 per litre for the week ending February 3, 0.9 cents cheaper than the previous week.
The Shoalhaven is known for often having more expensive fuel than the northern suburbs like Albion Park, but falling global oil prices have caused prices to drop down the coast.
Given current market forces, the NRMA says average unleaded petrol prices are expected to fall to 1.17 cents per litre over the next one to two weeks.
The organisation said motorists should look for the best deal to avoid being ripped off at the bowser. The average price ranges for E10, Premium 95 and Premium 98 should be as follows:
- E10 – a low point of 115 cents per litre and a high point of 132 cents per litre.
- Premium 95 – a low point of 131 cents per litre and a high point of 149 cents per litre.
- Premium 98 – a low point of 137 cents per litre and a high point of 155 cents per litre.
On Tuesday, February 5 Nowra’s cheapest fuel was 119.9 cents per litre (E10), at Mobil East Nowra. Prices were higher at Ulladulla with most service stations selling E10 for 133.9 cents per litre.
