With families driving across the state to see their loved ones this school holiday period, Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders has reminded drivers to shop around for the cheapest fuel prices via the FuelCheck app.
The FuelCheck app provides accurate, real-time price information for every petrol station in NSW, so that motorists can quickly and easily search for the best deal.
“So many families will be hitting the road and travelling to and from our region. Do yourself a favour – get the app and save your money to spend in town and support local businesses,” Mr Saunders said.
“The NSW Nationals are building a stronger and safer regional NSW and everyone in the Dubbo electorate can get a better deal on fuel, simply by using the FuelCheck app.”
“The app can save you up to $500 a year by giving you the opportunity to find the cheapest fuel on any given day.”
Minister for Better Regulation, Kevin Anderson said Fair Trading is on the ground ensuring the price on the app matches the price at the bowser.
“In the lead up to Easter, we inspected 229 stations across the state, and I’m happy to report that 99 percent of businesses were doing the right thing,” Mr Anderson said.
“Businesses have heard us loud and clear – keep the app up-to-date, or you could be fined $1,500.
“If you do see a difference between the prices on the app when you pull up to the pump, don’t hesitate to report it to Fair Trading.”
The FuelCheck app has been in the market for just over 3 years and in that time has been downloaded 1.4 million times, with a 94 per cent satisfaction rate. For those who don’t already have it, the Easter long weekend is the perfect time to download the app and give it a go. In NSW, saving money on petrol is easy with FuelCheck.
