NRMA spokesperson Peter Koury said those state capital cities were “starting to finally see some relief” at the petrol pump but other parts of Australia were out of luck.
“(The price) is starting to fall a bit,” he said.
“They won’t fall much, unfortunately, because the wholesale price in Australia right now is the highest it’s been since the (2008 global financial crisis).”
While motorists in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide will enjoy a slight dip in price, Mr Khoury said “the pain continues” for other Australian towns and cities.
Mr Khoury said Aussie motorists were being slugged with the highest prices in “at least the last seven or eight years”.
“There is no end in sight, certainly not for the next three or four weeks.”
“But even then, the numbers they’re talking about, 400,000 barrels of oil, it’s not going to be enough to meet these record high levels of demand.”
