Motorists across NSW have access to a website that displays real-time fuel prices.

The FuelCheck website publishes live fuel prices to better inform motorists across the state.

Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation Victor Dominello said FuelCheck provides accurate, reliable, real-time information about fuel prices at every service station across NSW, and motorists can search for the best deal by location, price, fuel type or brand.

“Making petrol price information publicly available online is a game changer – it enables motorists to identify where the cheapest fuel is before they commence their journey,” he said.

“FuelCheck is the first of its kind in Australia and will deliver a better deal for motorists by boosting competition and transparency in the fuel sector.”

NSW already has laws that dictate how service stations can display petrol prices on their roadside signboard. The new online tool extends the obligation to a digital platform.

If the price at the pump does not match what is shown on FuelCheck, consumers can make a complaint directly to NSW Fair Trading.

FuelCheck is currently in beta version, and consumers are encouraged to provide feedback about the accuracy and functionality of the website to NSW Fair Trading.

The new site is accessible on any device connected to the internet.
