Where to find the cheapest fuel on Fraser Coast
WHEN it comes to the cheapest fuel prices on the Fraser Coast, Maryborough is still the place to go.
Unleaded is almost 20c a litre cheaper on average in the Heritage City compared to Hervey Bay.
Hervey Bay's unleaded fuel average price is 144.9c while Maryborough's counterpart figure is at 127.5c, according to the RACQ.
RACQ spokesperson Renee Smith encourages motorists to shop around for the best deal before picking up the bowser.
"If you're from Hervey Bay and passing by Maryborough, you'll want to stop there and fuel up," she said.
"The prices between the two towns are quiet a difference."
Aside from simply saving yourself dollars, going for the cheaper choices has further benefits.
"It'll encourage the competitors to drop their price if they're not getting enough customers," Ms Smith said.
Ms Smith said in the Fraser Coast region, there was no real 'cycle' when it came to fuel prices.
"The prices here are a lot more consistent than in other parts of the state," she said.
