Fuel prices are influenced by several factors, including the value of the Australian dollar compared to the US dollar, competition, and pricing by wholesalers and retailers.
In the Australian metropolitan petrol market, prices are typically higher from Wednesday afternoon to Friday evening and lower on Tuesdays and Wednesday morning.
Reacting to price movements and taking advantage of price cycles takes time and effort.
