Ballarat petrol stations are gearing up for droves of customers as drivers look for bang for their buck before Easter.

Petrol prices have jumped by more than 40cents a litre in parts of Melbourne… but remain steady in Ballarat at around $1.30.

Metro Golden Point manager Steve Hocking-Bogele says the day before Good Friday tends to be one of the busiest at the bowser.

"It's been a very busy week, everyone has commented on Melbourne's prices and are expecting it to go up," he said.
