Ballarat fuel stays steady in face of soaring prices


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.
