Queensland Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington has called for mandatory online publishing of fuel prices, saying costs for motorists around Brisbane are out of control.
Displaying fuel costs has worked in NSW and a similar scheme is needed particularly around Brisbane where prices are about 18 cents per litre higher than in Kingaroy, to the city's north, Ms Frecklington said on Saturday.
"If people know what fuel prices are it will drive competition and that will drive prices down," she said.
Earlier in the week, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said there were no plans to roll out a real-time fuel pricing app or website and urged the national consumer watchdog to take the lead on the issue.
However in a statement on Monday the ACCC insisted it does not have a role in regulating fuel prices.
