Petrol Prices Melbourne Background

Melbourne petrol prices follow a fairly consistent pattern as shown in the following graph.

Daily Average Petrol Prices Melbourne

The price of petrol drops over a period of three to four weeks. Sometimes a shorter period and sometimes a longer period. You can see there's a minimum price point reached and then quickly over a period of 2-4 days the price jumps massively by 20-30 cents. Miss the price hike and you can easily spend $10-$15 more for a tank of petrol.

Petrol prices are also not consistent across Melbourne, or even sometimes the nearby suburbs. Before filling up with petrol, check petrol prices in Melbourne and you may find a petrol station along the way which could be up to 10 cents per litre less. Even a saving of 4 cents if you fill up each week could put $100 tax free back in your pocket.

With many families having two or more cars, families can save a considerable amount of money purchasing petrol. Savings that could easily add up to $200-$500 per year per car with a relatively small amount of effort.

Petrol Prices Melbourne - Alert

Petrol Prices Melbourne's News page provides alerts when prices hike. The largest single savings can be made by knowing when the petrol price hikes. Get in before the petrol price goes up and you can save $10-$15. Over a year this could easily add up to $100-$200. Let your family and friends know and they'll save too.


  • Don't always buy close to home The most expensive petrol station and the one we used the most is the local Shell Service station. The only saving grace is it accepts a discount voucher, but even then, with the discount voucher it can be more expensive than other services stations we may drive past. Our habit of filling up close to home we now realise has cost us a considerable amount of money over the years.

  • DIY - Find cheapest petrol prices Whilst building and running this page I found a number of sites and approaches that help find the cheapest petrol prices. You can find the list of sites and approaches on the DIY page available via the menu.

  • Average Terminal Gate Price The Average Terminal Gate Price is the average of the terminal gate prices taken on the morning of the date shown. Credit needs to go to the Australian Institute of Petroleum for providing this information on their site. A link is provided on the DIY page to the AIP site.

    The Average Terminal Gate Price is important as generally prices don't go up until the prices have come down to around this price during the discounting cycle. That is, until the petrol prices come down to or near the Average Terminal Gate Price we don't have to be concerned with prices peaking, as the petrol prices are still coming down. During the discounting phase we only need to look for the cheapest petrol prices.
