The latest RACQ data reveals Brisbane service stations were pumping fuel at a 15-month record high in April, despite a fall in the international oil price.
In recent weeks, prices at many petrol stations have hovered between $1.60 and $1.70 a litre, giving the big oil companies more than 45 cents profit for every litre pumped into a car.
RACQ spokeswoman Lauren Ritchie said the data showed what many people feared.
“Brisbane is the most expensive capital city in Australia when it comes to unleaded petrol prices,” Ms Ritchie said.
“When we are seeing jumps of around 40 cents a litre from the bottom of the cycle to the top of the cycle that really hurts.
“Retailers are taking a very healthy margin on top of what we should be paying here.”
