Legit almost all of these apply to me and I’m only 22

At 38 I just opened a packet of embroided face washers that had been in the bathroom drawer for 10 years. I figured at 38 years old I'm probably grown up enough for embroided towels. Boy are they soft

Polly Macaulay I really relate the fork post

I'm 34 and still not sure if I qualify as an adult yet.

Mikayla Mason wow um I am feeling personally attacked because most, if not all, of these currently apply to me at 28.

Bongz Sbongile you not yet or even close but my God the accuracy in this post... are sure I’m not 38 this year???

I got $1 a litre a couple of months back. But only cos the attendent read the Litres instead of the price ;) I can usually go looking for something in the high $1.30 range just under $1.40 in my area in newcastle but most of them around 1.50

Sorry but fuel that costs $1.40 plus is very expensive. Sorry Channel 7. Please don’t be stupid.

Yeah no thanks the traffic jam to get their & save a few cents wouldn’t be worth the effort

$2.14 in NZ going to be $3.00s soon a litre by end of year

That’s cheap? Really? Is that over $1.50 on the sign?

Adam need some cheap fuel? 😉

If one service station can sell petroleum cheap then we are getting ripped off everywhere else

So where is the CONSUMER WATCHDOG while this is happening. I doubt Shell are making a loss on the fuel selling it 99.9c so they should be bringing the price down. What are these people getting paid to do. Never seen them actually change anything. Might as well get rid of them and put the money elsewhere.

It’s other stations aswell as Springwood an any signs that state 138 u got to bowser an it’s either out of order or has a different price at bowser, go to freedom servo loganholme it’s always under 150 if not under 130

makes you wonder doesnt it, how can places sell it for so cheap and others out the roof??? Oh thats right, profiteering.

No doubt they were asked to end it, there was chaos.

The traffic is horrendous 😡

Well played servo, well played.

Stirling Loach feel like a drive to the coast for some fuel 😂

Toowoomba: Police have released vision of a man who assaulted a police officer after a disturbance report at a licensed venue on the New England Highway at Harlaxton.

Recognise him? Call Policelink on 131 444.

Report on 7 News at 6pm. www.7plus.com.au

QPS: Police have released vision of a man who may be able to assist with inquiries following the assault of a police officer at Harlaxton on the weekend. At around 2.40am on Saturday, May 19 officers attended a licensed venue on the New England Highway following reports of a disturbance. After speaking to a number of patrons police accompanied a man into the carpark for the purpose of obtaining his ID card. The man entered a vehicle and started the engine, at which time a 31-year-old male constable attempted to intervene and prevent him from leaving. The man punched the constable a number of times in the chest before driving away at speed over a footpath and directly across four lanes of the highway, striking a traffic island in the process. The police officer was not seriously injured as a result of the incident. The man is described as Aboriginal in appearance, aged in his 20s, around 183cm tall with black hair and brown eyes. Police have released CCTV from inside the venue of a man who may be able to assist with investigations. Anyone who may recognise the man is urged to contact police.

Some 35 short years ago we had Jobs everywhere, we had Iron Ore and great steel industries, we had ship building, Car manufacturing, we built TV’s, radio’s, washing machines, lawn mowers, hills hoists & furniture manufacturing. We built Car parts and we even made our own tyres! We had fishing ports and cheap Petrol that was made at Port Stanvac SA, Bulimba Brisbane. Mortlake Sydney Refinery’s from oil brought from Bass Strait, North West Shelf and Timor Sea. We built Aircraft, Boats and Buses. Locomotive diesel electric trains as well as the tracks and everything was “PROUDLY MADE IN AUSTRALIA”! We had Corner stores and Hardware shops all over the city and country. We had work available as a driveway attendant at all our local Service Stations. And at ALL these places you could find a JOB!!! We had PUBLIC UTILITIES like Power Stations, Water & Gas which would employ thousand around the Country. Then Government sold our soul and started to Corporatise itself and began to compete instead of Govern. Then we started going down hill! All our companies started going offshore or closing down because this new corporate government did deals with other countries under free trade agreements that allowed them to totally wipe out our business and manufacturing by selling us their cheap crap. These Foreign Countries took over our Mineral resources. They drove our Farmers off their land and started selling it to these foreign countries and set up 457 visa’s as well which would let these countries bring in their own workers! These things left our once beautiful Country in tatters! Then these Politicians allowed Foreign Countries to buy our Power Stations and guaranteed them that they would always make a profit at our expense no matter what. Now because we have lost so much the Government then realised they don't get much income anymore and have to find new ways to make money so it hits it’s own people further in the pocket. They cut funding to our Education and over the years led us to import skilled workers because we didn't have any! They cut funding to our Emergency Services, they cut funding to our police and Public housing. These new Corporate Government Politicians laughed in our faces and gave themselves MASSIVE pay rises and they all pat themselves on the back knowing that we are so dumb and stupid we would not know what is going on! Now they tell us we have to tighten our belts and lose what little we have left to pay back the MASSIVE DEBT they left us all in. Now I drive the main roads and all I see is the empty buildings that once housed all these great manufacturing companies and I begin to cry seeing them all run down or for lease!!! This over paid government need more taxes to live on so they are now going to force our elderly (God bless them, for they are the ones that built this Nation) back into the workforce until they are 70. and tell everyone to go out and get a JOB!! So can someone in this new Corporate Government tell us EXACTLY WHERE THESE BLOODY JOBS ARE???????????????????????

Why are non citizens allowed to purchase investment properties or land here? It's because of them that many Aussies can't get a foot into the market due to prices getting artificially jacked up. And for those who think it's good for the economy.. it's not good for ordinary Australians and it needs to be reigned in by state & local governments.

Why invade a country when you can buy it

We can't buy land in China they should not be able to buy our land never.

Don't allow this to happen....wake up

So why is the Australian government letting non Australians buy up all housing and assets????

Pushing up house prices and in turn making the market out of reach for Australian locals.

Victor Lee 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

Ishpreet Sharma

Chris Cole 😱

Soon we'll be the 2nd Republic of China.

It’s the year of the dog it’s the time to buy land no doubt about that . Glad they have a little vision .

So what happens when the war against China starts ? do they break the land and houses up and take it with them ?

Awesome bring in the money we need all the projects in Queensland

The Sydney effect.

So how does this work? How can you fathom 1.60 prices but can so easily drop it to 99.9 goes to show that it's the fuel companies themselves pocketing all the extra coin when there's no need for it to priced that high at all

Last week shell and Coles express shell were investigated by the ACCC. This week this happens... marketing ploy much?

Which shell in Coomera??

If they can do it, why can't the rest of them.

If one servo can drop the price so can all the others! 😠

If they can why can't others.

About time and all servos should do the same and stay that price

Wonder how many are gunna run out of fuel waiting lol

If one can drop the price why cant all states of Australia? We have been getting milked for decades the motorist. It has to stop.

A pity all servos aren't that cheap

$159.9 for cheap unleaded in Brisbane!!!!

JatindEr SiNgh NaTt just in case you are off to gold coast 🤣

So if it’s 99c on the Gold Coast why is it almost 1.80 in Brisbane

We're paying $159.9 in some areas of brisbane 😤

that petrol station is just opened price will change soon

Best way to clean new tanks at a servo.

Kasi Hurley how commited to cheap fuel are you?
