According to FuelCheck’s data, independent service stations consistently sell cheaper fuel, there can be more than a 20 cent price difference in fuel between service stations in the same suburb, and the cheapest day to fill up is Saturday.
Minister for Customer Service, Victor Dominello, urged residents to check out the app to save money at the bowser, particularly over the holidays.
“Whether you are visiting friends and family, or planning a trip out of town, FuelCheck can help you find the cheapest fuel anywhere in NSW in real-time,” Mr Dominello said.
“Half a million people can’t be wrong. This is about making life easier for citizens by taking power away from big oil and putting it in their hands.”
The app includes a Favourite Stations function, and the My Trip function utilises Google Maps to enable users to find the cheapest petrol station on their journey and direct them to the station.
There is also a Trends page, showing the cheapest day of the week to fill up and the day’s price range.
Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, Kevin Anderson, said NSW Fair Trading officers often conduct compliance checks to ensure service stations are updating their fuel prices in real-time.
“If the price at the pump does not match what is shown on the App, motorists can make a complaint directly to Fair Trading,” Mr Anderson said.
