Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll: The Petrol Industry

January 28th, 2007 at 12:10am

Time for another Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll.

Are consumers being treated fairly by the petroleum industry?

Total Votes: 24
Started: January 27, 2007

Feel free to discuss the poll subject in the comments below. You need to be a registered member of Samuel’s Blog to comment, but anyone can vote. The system will attempt to prevent you from voting more than once, and whilst it might not always be able to do that, I request that you only vote once.

Disclaimer: This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you’re using these numbers to do anything important, you’re insane. That being said, I do try to keep the results fair and accurate, and I try to prevent abuse by unscrupulous voters, but I can’t make any guarantees.

Now for the results from last week’s poll.

What do you think the minimum age should be for people to drive a car without supervision (eg. obtain “P” plates)?

There were also a few legitimate votes for the answer “13 and under”, which was removed from the poll after repeated abuse. I suspect that the majority of votes for “14” were from the “13 and under” abuser(s), however the results were certainly quite interesting none the less, it would appear that the general concensus is for older (and theoretically more mature) drivers, although opinion is clearly divided on exactly what age that should be.

For a list of all previous results, see the Weekly Poll Results page.

    I voted for “no”, and I think an email I sent to 2UE’s Stuart Bocking about a not even remotey rare occurrence just about sums up my views on the issue.

    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!

    I voted no.
    I don’t know too much about the issue but from my understand I think it’s the Government excises etc. that are treating the consumers unfairly, not the petrol industry.
