Brisbane drivers could soon be paying record prices for petrol.
The RACQ expects petrol prices to peak on Wednesday when the record average of 169.9 cents per litre across the city, set a year ago, will be threatened.
The high prices have been attributed to the oil attacks in Saudi Arabia, the trade war between the United States and China and a weaker Australian dollar.
Prices in some areas in southeast Queensland have already exceeded $1.70, the RACQ said.
“We’re urging motorists if they see these high prices, to keep on driving past,” RACQ spokesman Paul Turner said.
