The State Government will deliver real time petrol pricing to South Australian motorists after legislation passed the State Parliament.
This follows the South Australian Productivity Commission's review into fuel pricing.
The South Australian Productivity Commission's report on Fuel Pricing found that while petrol price cycles still exist in states that use fuel price monitoring, having real time data helps consumers find low cost fuel.
A two-year trial will take place, which will require petrol stations to report any price changes to a centralised database.
The Government will undertake a procurement process to engage a company to run the centralised database.
