Fair Trading Minister, Anthony Roberts, says that it's difficult to understand why there is a difference of up to more than eleven cents per litre between the two, when the wholesale price difference is often only two cents.

If the gap is not found to be justified, or if evidence of price gouging is revealed, Mr. Roberts says that the Federal Govenrment will be expected to take decisive action.
