The Launceston Chamber of Commerce is renewing its call for motorists to get a fair go for fuel.
The Australian Institute of Petroleum this week found Tasmania to be the state worst affected by current petrol price hikes, with Victorians paying less than five cents extra for fuel while Tasmanians are slugged 12.5 cents a litre.
The Chamber's Executive Officer, Jan Davis, says Tasmania cops it worse than other states - and the north worse still.
"A report that came out earlier in the week said that there'd been... the highest increase in the past two years over the last few days," Ms Davis said.
"In Tassie that means we're getting hit again, particularly in Launceston, because our petrol prices are out of line with everybody else."
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's survey last year proved what most people had always suspected: Launceston motorists pay around 12 cents more for a litre of fuel than motorists in the five largest Australian cities.
It found that a more competitive Launceston fuel market would create ongoing savings of four-to-five cents per litre.
"But," said Ms Davis, "not one thing has happened since."
