Changes to fuel excise
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) advises that from 29 September 2022, the full fuel excise will be reinstated resulting in an extra 25.3 cents per litre in taxes, and reminds consumers that significant savings can be made by shopping around for the best price available and by timing their purchases.
If you believe a fuel retailer has made false or misleading statements about the reasons for any price increases, or is engaging in anti-competitive behaviour (such as price collusion), please alert the ACCC via the Infocentre.
