The Tasmanian Government has announced they will be introducing a mandatory real-time fuel price reporting scheme. To make this happen, a website and free app will be developed to help Tasmanian consumers search for the cheapest fuel available.
This comes after it became clear that while mainland fuel prices reduced quickly in line with global markets (as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic), the same did not occur in Tasmania.
The Government will closely monitor price information provided by fuel retailers. There will be penalties for anyone not providing accurate information.
