Oil Price Hike On The Gold Coast Before Easter Weekend

Published by:

Car owners know how expensive it is to maintain a vehicle. Many are looking for ways to save such as finding the cheapest mechanic on the Gold Coast but one thing car owners cannot control is the price of fuel. A few days before the Easter weekend, petrol prices started to increase all over the coast. This move is not surprising at all because it is a common move seen prior to important holidays. The increase in fuel prices is happening all over the Coast from the north to the south. It will then slowly happen in suburbs all over the city.

In just a span of 24 hours, the prices in some gasoline stations have increased to $1.59 from the previous $1.29. It is expected that the price will remain the same until the next week as many are going away for the Easter holiday to visit their loved ones.

For motorists who are looking to save from oil prices, visit stations that are located along Brisbane road or in Southport. Oftentimes, the independent gasoline stations have lower prices because they are competing with the giant chains such as BP, Coles and Caltex. Offering lower prices of gasoline is the only way for them to stay ahead of the competition.

There are a number of stations that chose to remain at the $1.30 price per litre instead of going up to $1.59.

Rebecca Michael, the chair of public policy, revealed that the price hike affected stations like a wild fire. Despite the steep costs, drivers who are trying to save will still be able to get bargain prices if they visit the right stations.

She added that the most expensive fuel can be bought at the ends of the Coast – north and south while the cheaper gasoline products can be bought at middle areas. She attributed the fast increase into the blooming effect.

Ms. Michael revealed that customers are now utilizing mobile apps to check for petrol stations with the cheapest fuel prices. This is one way for them to save aside from getting the cheapest mechanic on the Gold Coast in case their vehicles encountered some problems.

Which Australian State Is The Largest User Of Solar Energy, NSW Or Queensland?

The decision to install Gold Coast solar panel can deliver financial benefits to a household. Solar power is produced when the energy from the sun is converted into electricity or used in heating water, air and other substances. Solar is a renewable energy source that will not be lost unless the sun stops to shine.

At present there are 2 types of solar power technology: solar photovoltaic (PV) that converts sunlight directly to electricity through the PV cells and solar thermal where sunlight is converted into thermal energy or heat that can be used directly or converted to electricity.

Solar PV’s are combined in panels that are placed in rooftops or installed in fields to create large-scale solar farms. Solar PVs and solar thermal can be combined together in one system to generate electricity and heat.

One of the key issues for voters in the New South Wales election is climate change. It is expected to be the factor that will highly influence voters in the federal election scheduled for May. At present, New South Wales and Western Australia are the only states in Australia that does not have a renewable energy target.

Campaigns are focused on investments in renewable energy most particularly solar energy. According to Premier Gladys Berejiklian, the largest user of solar energy is NSW which does not check out. NSW compared to other states has the largest population. In order to measure solar energy use, data must be collected on solar energy generation, capacity and consumption which are in proportion to the state’s total energy use.

For the period between Match 01, 2018 to March 01, 2019, Queensland generated the highest total number of gigawatt hours of solar electricity through its large scale systems. NSW is 2nd place with Victoria in 3rd place. In small scale rooftops systems, Queensland has generated the highest gigawatt hours.

The vast majority of Gold Coast solar panel can be found in the rooftop of homes. As of December 31, 2018, more than 2 million households in Australia have a rooftop solar system. Knowledgeable and experienced electricians address the household’s need to have solar panels to access the free energy that the sun provides.
