- “Our view is that residents in many parts of regional Queensland have been paying too much for fuel in recent years,”
- “If we can help out by driving the costs of fuel down, particularly in regional areas, then that will ensure people have more money for groceries, health care or even the occasional treat.”
“With other United petrol stations in the area known for their low prices, United marketing manager Andrew English said people looking to fill up could expect to see cheap fuel at the new site between Tiaro and Gympie by November.”
