Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum

Only yesterday there was a report of someone saying that petrol prices were on their way up and would soon reach $1.30 a litre. And behold it was so (hence the title of this blog...Be it unto me according to your word! (Luke 1:38))
Mind you this wasn't supposed to happen until next week as (allegedly) there is a week's lag between pump prices . The RAA "put the companies on notice" (here).
Their media release says

“Any attempt to deliberately exploit an already vulnerable consumer market is simply unacceptable.”

Pre-empting the price rise, the RAA has been in contact with each of the major oil companies in the last 24 hours, warning them to do the right thing by motorists over coming weeks

BUT this morning I did note that our local Shell station had petrol at 129.9! I guess they are making a statement aboutu who isd putting whom "on notice!"
Oh and of course it is a Long Weekend! Surprise, surprise!
