Petrol in Canberra

| | Comments (4)

One thing Canberra does very *very* badly, is provide basic services - like PETROL! The nearest petrol station to Stu's is 4km away (actually there might be another one a bit closer, bit it's in the complete opposite direction to anything useful). That petrol station also happens to be the only one between his house and the NSW border 15km away. So when that only petrol station is closed for renovations, and you really want to get petrol before you get going, then the only choice is to drive half way into the city to get it. How utterly bumheadful is that??

Not to mention that the queues in that solitary petrol station on a Friday night are often back out onto the street.

There's rumours of another one being built nearby, and it can't come soon enough IMO.

Do you mean Eaglehawk near the border? Yeah I was worried about that one not being open or not knowing how to get at it from the south. Turns out there is a well marked exit for it.

It used to be run by the mafia, and as such had the cheapest petrol in the earea.
