The Big Change Coming To Melbourne's Petrol Stations
Petrol stations in Victoria will be banned from displaying discounted prices on fuel notice boards from the end of November.
According to The Herald Sun, 'supermarkets and other servos will be forced to show full prices available to all customers, rather than those conditional on a shopper docket'
'Operators will still be able to note offers such as 4c off on boards — but not the discounted dollar amount.'
Consumer Affairs Minister Marlene Kairouz says “The new regulations mean that nobody will pay more for fuel than the price displayed on the board.”
Those breaching the law will face fines of up to $3033 per board and motorists are being urged to dob in any outlets that flout the new rules in force from November 30 onwards.
