Alderman Murray Stewart said the difference between fuel prices in cities such as Melbourne and Sydney with the desert town is about 25c a litre. (But) it can get up to 40c a litre, he said. There should be greater equality. Unleaded petrol and diesel prices in Alice Springs yesterday were about $1.66 a litre and $1.73 a litre respectively. Thats a lot of money, Mr Stewart said. He said the situation most likely would get worse be cause of the crisis in Libya. Were well on our way to (paying) $2 a litre in the next few months, he said. Mr Stewart said the council had written to the Australian Local Government Association to call for a price equation strategy. He said that would be debated at a meeting in Canberra in June. Mr Stewart said there were two options to lower fuel prices in Alice Springs to match prices elsewhere. We could levy metropolitan motorists, he said. However, levies were not the flavour of the month after the carbon tax and Medicare levy, he said. The next best strategy would be a ceiling on the difference between the gate price and the pump price, Mr Stewart said. He said there was no ceiling price at the pumps. Its not good enough, he said. Mr Stewart said there would be less collusion among oil companies with a ceiling strategy. It would take that activity right out of it, he said. The resolution was passed by the town council and possible legislation on the issue would be debated at the ALGA meeting. Mr Stewart said legislation would have to be introduced to have a ceiling price on the margin between gate and pump prices.
