Why fuel prices matter

The car remains king in Western Australia. There are more than 2.2million motorised vehicles in Western Australia in 2013 and this year there were 117,600 new motor vehicles sold.

From February 2 this year, Western Australian motorists started paying even more tax on their fuel as the Federal Government’s fuel excise increase kicked in.

This matters because WA residents are big purchasers of fuel. We buy $1.7 billion litres of petrol each year, contributing on average $675 million per annum to the Australian Government just through fuel excise.
