Drivers across South East Queensland are being warned to brace for hip pocket pain at the bowser, with the region on track to reach a four-year fuel price high in the coming days.
RACQ data has revealed some of Brisbane's biggest retailers have increased unleaded prices to a whopping 162.9 cents per litre this week and if the trend continues, it would likely result in the highest average price we've seen since July 2014.
Spokesperson Lucinda Ross said while record prices are on the horizon, there is still plenty of cheap fuel available and drivers should be filling up the tank today before they miss out.
"If you spot ULP for 142cpl or less, fill up the tank – we don’t know how long it’ll be before prices come back down again," she said.
