LPG has been an alternative fuel for Australian motorists for many years. And with the average retail price of LPG in Australia currently cheap, it remains attractive to many consumers.
Over time, international prices can fluctuate significantly, both up and down. This has been particularly pronounced in recent years. Australian retail LPG prices often change in line with international prices. However, changes in international prices at the beginning of the month can take seven to fourteen days to be reflected in retail prices in capital cities and even longer in regional areas.
As propane and butane are traded in international trade in US dollars, the value of the Australian dollar also affects the price. Australia has recently benefited from the strength of the Australian dollar. This means that retail LPG prices in Australia are lower than they would be if the Australian dollar were weaker.
The amount of LPG sold outside capital cities can be quite small. At filling stations where LPG sales are low, the higher costs of transporting and storing LPG are spread across fewer sales, which can result in higher prices per litre.
