Chart of the day: Where to buy the cheapest petrol in the big cities
It's official — independent chains sell the cheapest petrol, at least in capital cities.
The independents were on average the lowest priced petrol retailers in the five largest capital cities, according to a report released by the Australian Competition Commission (ACCC) this week.
Coles Express was the most expensive.
The ACCC analysed average petrol prices for major retailers — those with 10 or more stations in each city — and small independent retailers, comparing them to the 2017 market average in each city.
