Motorists urged to shop around for their fuel
Drivers throughout Australia have been suffering in recent months, as fuel costs have spiralled upwards.
The Herald Sun reports that the price of petrol in Melbourne has now surged to $1.60 a litre, which is obviously placing a great amount of strain on people's finances.
However, leaders at the Australian Automobile Association have suggested that rates may now have reached their peak and are likely to come down soon.
Also, certain filling stations are selling the fuel for far less than others, so it is worth shopping around in order to save some cash.
"Make sure you know where the cheaper petrol is available," executive director of the organisation Andrew McKellar was quoted as saying.
The same principle applies to car insurance costs too.
It is always worth comparing various quotes, as there is every chance that you will find the same level of cover for a much more affordable price with a different firm.
