PRICE FIXING HAS NOT STOPPED AS PETROL COMMISSIONERS HANDS ARE TIED IT IS SAID

HOW DOES THE PETROL COMMISSIONER EARN HIS KEEP-NOTHING..??

THE government should sack its petrol commissioner for failing to uncover a ”scandal” in fuel pricing, independent senator Nick Xenophon says.

The senator’s comments follow claims by the Australian Automobile Association that motorists had been ”short-changed” during Woolworths’ and Coles’ 8¢ a litre ”double discount” offer, which started last October.

”The $330,000 a year the petrol commissioner Joe Dimasi earns and the $1 million it costs to run his office could be much better spent on peak motoring bodies doing the monitoring,” Senator Xenophon said in a press release.
