Victorians' credit card spending habits revealed

The high cost of fuel appears to have had an impact on the spending habits of Victorians.

Having analysed the credit card transactions of two million National Australia Bank customers in the past year, it has been revealed that people across the state are spending far more on fuel than they are on eating out and other forms of entertainment, the Herald Sun reports.

The typical Aussie spent $300 more on filling their vehicle's tank than they spent on dining out, with the average person putting $1,264 worth of petrol into their cars and vans during the past 12 months.

It seems that the situation is likely to worsen in the coming weeks, as H3 Global Advisors director Mathew Kaleel told the Sydney Morning Herald that the current high value of oil will push prices up further at the pumps.

According to the statistics, men are spending more than women when visiting filling stations, as the average male parts with $48 compared with $44 for females.
