Every single week in Perth the fuel prices follow a predictable cycle.
They gradually drop a little each day thru to Tuesday (which is almost always the cheapest day to buy fuel) and then on Wednesday they jump back up by 10 c/litre.
Its a cycle that repeats every week without fail.
Maybe I’m missing something but I can’t see how prices can fluctuate so dramatically over the course of a week – every week.
And yet it seems to be one of those strange phenomena that we now take for granted. Occasionally I find myself wondering why we put up with it, but then I don’t have the time or energy to ‘lead the charge’ against dodgy fuel prices, so I guess I just have to cop it like everyone else
