Whingeing whining Sydney Suburb dwellers who complain about the price of fuel have little to gripe about.
Nearly 43 years ago the petrol pumps were selling petrol in Sydney at 48 cents per Imperial Gallon or 4.7 litres equivalent . The first petrol sold in Litres at a pump in Sydney jumped to 12 cents per litre.
Since the advent of the litre at the bowser in the Sydney Suburbs, wages have increased by at least 18 times more than in 1971. Taking this into consideration and allowing fuel prices to to be increased with wage indexation, One would expect the price of fuel at this point in time to be AUS $2-16 per litre.
So why all the fuss.?. It seems Ten selected Suburbs around Sydney are griping about the following prices for fuel in their area, being $149 cents per litre and others At138,129,128,126,125,123,120,119,118, cents per litre.
Most of these moaners have far less distance to travel to their area of employment than some persons travelling to the City from the outer suburbs,. My local Crooked fuel dealer charges $ 1-57 per litre.
It seems most of the happiness in this world consists in possessing what others can't get.
