The State Premier, Hon Steven Marshall MP, has requested that the SA Productivity Commission investigate options in an effort to increase the transparency of fuel pricing in South Australia.
The Premier has asked the Commission to investigate and report on the following:
a) The benefits and effectiveness of the NSW and WA models
b) Current regulatory arrangements for fuel pricing in SA and how alternative models compare
c) The most cost-effective solution to increase transparency
Increased consumer benefit is the desired outcome, so we expect that the status quo will not be acceptable to the Premier unless there is an extremely compelling argument.
We will be making a submission in response to this on your behalf.
