"Both 7-Eleven and Pacific Petroleum weren’t far behind, with average prices of 142.9cpl and 142.7cpl, respectively.

"Surprisingly, supermarket giant Woolworths was perhaps the largest retailer offering prices at the cheaper end of the market.

"Aggressive discounter Metro recently expanded into the state and is giving competitors a run for their money, selling unleaded up to 14cpl less than the most expensive."

Ms Smith said the independent retailers were offering bargain deals and they should be rewarded.

"Often these bigger companies have the luxury of being located on major, high-traffic roads where desperate drivers pull in and fill up because it’s convenient," she said.

"Never assume that all service stations are charging the same. Looking at this June data, it just proves they’re not."
