Credit Union Australia offers 50 cent fuel discount

Credit Union Australia (CUA) have launched a 50 cent a litre petrol discount to customers who take out a Standard or Discount Variable Home Loan between 17 September and 17 November 2006. The offer is for 12 months and is redeemable at any petrol station, limited to 52 purchases over the 12 months. With the average family filling up their average sedan (60 litres) each week, this could save over $1,500 in fuel costs. Service Station Association CEO, Ron Bowden, warned motorists not to get to comfortable now that petrol prices have fallen below $1.20 a litre citing “tensions in the Middle East, hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and problems in Nigeria” as potentially having an impact on future petrol prices.
