ACCC's fuel monitoring role
While the ACCC does not set fuel prices, we monitor retail fuel prices on a daily basis. New arrangements for ACCC monitoring of the Australian petroleum industry are in place from 2015.
The ACCC monitors retail prices of unleaded petrol, diesel and LPG in all Australian capital cities and in around 180 regional locations. This enables us to provide you with information about fuel prices, including petrol price cycles in the larger cities.
Where we see issues of concern we will investigate. And, where we find sufficient evidence we will take action to protect consumers against misleading and anti-competitive conduct by fuel retailers.
When directed by the Minister, we also monitor the prices, costs and profits relating to the supply of unleaded petroleum products in Australia.
