Canberra Petrol Prices

Hi Stuart,

Just thought you might be interested in my observation of regular unleaded petrol prices in Canberra today. This morning and for most of the day they were steady on 107.9 cents per litre. During the evening peak hours I noticed they jumped in more than a few places to 111.9, and when I took the dog for a walk this evening around 7:30 they were back down to 107.9.

Am I imagining the collusion here?

Have a great Australia Day!

And the Australian Of The Year Is…

Dr. Tim Flannery. I’m yet to see it on AAP or Radioinfo (who are distributing audio), but 2UE’s 7PM news has announced Dr. Flannery as the Australian Of The Year.

Congratulations Tim.

Update 7:08pm: OK, AAP and Radioinfo have caught up. End Update

Goulburn Googong Pipeline

Good morning again Mike,

A few quick thoughts on Pru Goward's idea of piping water from Googong dam to Goulburn.

1. They have just as much right to the water as we do.
2. They're only going to use a tiny amount compared to us, especially seeing as they will only use Googong a few times per year
3. It's an election promise…el nino will most probably be breaking by the time the NSW election is over, but the pipeline would be a good investment for the future if it ever happens.
4. The more we whinge about this, the less likely we are to get help from NSW when the next drought strikes.
