About the fuel price reporting trial
An aggregation system for the fuel price reporting scheme has been established under s.4 of the Fair Trading (Fuel Price Reporting) Regulation 2018.
From 3 December, all Queensland fuel retailers are required to report their fuel prices as part of a 2-year trial to help motorists find the cheapest fuel prices.
The trial will enable Queensland motorists to compare fuel prices in their local area, find the cheapest price and save money at the bowser.
Note: Mandatory fuel price reporting is designed to make it easier for motorists to take advantage of the fuel price cycle to find the best deal. However, it will not stop the price cycle that motorists experience around the world.

Background to the trial
A working group of industry stakeholders including the RACQ, the Australian Institute of Petroleum and the Australasian Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association assisted the Queensland Government in developing options for this trial.
The working group considered existing fuel price reporting arrangements, options for ensuring fuel retailers report accurately, lessons from other jurisdictions, and the consumer benefits and regulatory costs of alternative models.
The outcomes are summarised in the Fuel price reporting: Decision regulatory impact statement (PDF, 2.8MB).
