Petrol prices have finally started to decline on the South Coast, after months of above-average costs.
The low prices are all thanks to a sudden drop in global oil prices and a rise in the value of the Australian dollar.
While petrol prices on the South Coast won’t fall as low as Sydney or Wollongong, most stations have dropped the price of E10 below $1.30 per litre.
The NSW average for E10 on Monday was 125.33 cents per litre.
In Kiama, Enhance, located on Collins Street, had the cheapest fuel, at 123.9 cents per litre.
United at Tomerong was next in line for cheapest fuel, with E10 at 125.7 cents per litre. Enhance at Gerringong was also one of the cheaper stations at 125.9 cents per litre.
Further south at Nowra, the cheapest E10 on offer was at Mobil East Nowra, at 127.9 cents per litre.
In Ulladulla the cheapest E10 on offer was a full 10 cents more expensive than in Kiama, at 133.9 cents per litre.
Last week, the NRMA’s Rebecca Page said while prices were falling, it was still important to research before filling up at the bowser.
“You don’t have to get stung once you fill up, a bit of research can go a really long way,” she said.
“You could save up to $30 per tank and I know families would rather spend that on Christmas than handing it over to retailers.”
