Comparing big chain petrol and independe Sydney
In 2018, independent gasoline sellers offered consistently lower fuel prices than their larger competitors. Data compiled by the Australian Competition and Consumer Protection Commission shows that motorists could save up to $ 350 - or $ 275 million - last year if they instead dodged major brands and chose independent retailers. ACCC Chairman Rod Sims informs, that independent chains were the lowest-priced retailers in all eight (metropolitan) cities, while Coles Express was the lowest-priced retailer in almost every city,
In the ACCC report says, that retailers meet front to front in three distinct categories: supermarket chains (Woolies and Coles), marketing processors (BP and Caltex), and key independents (7-Eleven and United). Woolworths was, in the supermarket chain, average 3.5% cheaper than Coles Express, resulting in a 6% difference in Sydney. Caltex was consistently cheaper than BP, but only 0.9% on average in Australia. In the battle between the two largest independent retailers, United came out on top, becoming cheaper more than 3% in all eight major cities.
According to ACCC, the best way to find cheaper petrol is using fuel price comparison apps.

The organizers have to look for a new location for multi-day events as the City of Sydney Council has banned significant events at Hyde Park from next year. Sydney Festival and Night Noodle Markets are the two most prominent events that take place at this Park, and now they have to look for another venue. The event organizers have promised that the events will take place in the center of Sydney, and they are working on the replacement venue.
City of Sydney lord mayor Clover Moore said in a statement that the Park has to stay available for public all year round, and this is the main reason behind the ban. She said the Park is a heritage site, and it has to be maintained carefully. The Night Noodle Markets were taking place at the same venue for the last 16 years and attracted close to 400,000 people last year.

The Victorian teacher Kathryn Joy Woods was accused in molesting a person under 16 by the Court. Her lawyer, Colin Mandy S.S., told the Court of Appeal today that her acquittal on 12 related charges showed that the jury must have doubted the veracity of her prosecutor. Mr Mandy said that it makes no sense for jury members to convict Woods on some charges, but not on others. He considers, if they have adequate doubts as to whether the applicant is telling the truth this doubt of his credibility should extend to other charges.
However, Attorney Jeremy McVilliams protected the guilty findings as “perfectly rational and completely logical.”
The commissioner Bruce Lander informs, that poor records at SA Health make it not easy to detect corruption. He had earlier confirmed about his confidence of corruption in the health system of South Australia and a bad documentation worsened its search. Earlier this year Mr Lander sent a letter to the Health Minister Stephen Wade, where he asks money for the researches of corruption, and says it damages administration in the health system. Mr Lander also said, he can help the agency recoup far more than the cost of the inquiry.
Treasurer Rob Lucas answered Lander, they have already provided ICAC with additional funding of $14.5 million and the government can't give them now more money for additional needs.
