Easter Petrol Price

With the Easter long weekend looming, Raquel and I predicted that the petrol price will only increase further. To avoid the price hike, I had the car filled up with petrol last Tuesday.

I drove to the nearby Shell station and was surprised at the number of people who had the same idea. There were at least three cars queued behind each bowser. I looked at the posted price and it was only $1.18 per litre that night. That’s actually cheap considering that lately, the price had been about $1.20 per litre, give or take.

I’ve just seen on the news that the price went up as high as $1.34 per litre today. So, I’m very thankful that we’ve already had the car filled up and ready to roll on the coming long weekend.
