Using reduced fuel costs to get on top of vehicle maintenance

Updated: Jul 30, 2020

If you’ve recently passed a petrol station, you’ve probably noticed that petrol prices have been wavering around AUD$1.00. This is lower than they were 15 years ago!

In light of the recent events, there is one silver lining: cheap fuel.

The Cause of Australia’s Low Fuel Prices

Since the outbreak began, it has caused a harsh disruption of global supply chains - which is likely the reason you might be rationing your toilet paper right now.

This disruption has also forced analysts to forecast and delegate less oil demand since the enforcement of self-isolation. More people are being warned to stay indoors, meaning fewer drivers on the road requiring fuel.

This collapse in demand is what then triggered the price wars between oil giants Russia and Saudi Arabia.

Both giants are competing for your purchase and therefore have dropped prices to extreme lows. This is good news for consumers - especially those working in the trucking industry.
