The Alice Springs News Online has received information from a fuel retailer which seems to contradict assertions that it are the service stations which are ripping off the public.
UPDATE Friday Aug 3 at 11:30am
Alice Springs fuel retailers are continuing to line their pockets with record margins, showing no concerns for the public by failing to pass on available savings.
This is the view of Edon Bell, the General Manager of the Automobile Association of the NT which has more than 20,000 members.

A self drive tourist visiting Alice Springs is outraged that he was charged in Alice Springs double what he is used to pay in Adelaide for LPG Autogas. He wrote to the Alice Springs News Online and we passed his concerns to the town council, the Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Central Australia. It seems they couldn't care less.
