SHOP AROUND: Massive fluctuations in region's fuel prices

FUEL prices from bowser to bowser currently fluctuate between 136.9c to 110.9 for unleaded 91 on the Northern Rivers.

The NRMA has made a new call to drivers to shop around, because sometimes a much cheaper options is just around the corner.

Head of media for the NRMA, Peter Khoury, said prices in regional NSW were all around 120c.

"The average in Byron Bay is 121.7c, in Ballina it's 121.9c and in Lismore it's 120.5c," he said.

"To that's pretty much on par with the rest of regional NSW.

"Tweed follows the Brisbane cycle, so last week they were quite high but they have come down to an average to 126c.

"Albury's average is 116c, Armadale is 119c, Batemans Bay is 126c, Bathurst is 115c, Bega is 127c, Bellingen is 119c and The Blue Mountains is 132c, for instance

"Each town, effectively, it's its won market, so it's good to see them separately."

Mr Khoury said there has been no significant change in fuel pricing in NSW during the Christmas and New Year period.

"We don't expect them to change in the near future either," he said.

"Fuel prices have gone up a bit internationally, but the Aussie dollar has stayed very strong so that would balance that out.

"At the end of the day there is no reason to pay more for the same fuel, get on the NRMA app and shop around!"
