The cheapest places to refill your car on the Coast

IF YOU'RE buying unleaded fuel for more than 137 cents per litre, you're being ripped off, according to RACQ.

Fuel prices in Hervey Bay are higher than RACQ's fair fuel price of 135.5 cents with most service stations charging more than 141.7 cents for unleaded petrol.

Maryborough prices are considerably lower with majority of fuel stations offering between 131.7 and 136.6 cents per litre.

RACQ Queensland spokeswoman Lauren Ritchie said to bring cheaper fuel to the region, it was all about customers creating competition.

"We are always telling people they have to shop around (for fuel) but it falls on deaf ears," she said.

"If you go to expensive fuel stations, they'll keep charging what they want because they know you're not picky.

"If you stop going there, they feel forced to drop their prices."
