"Australians pay more for just about everything"
Really? Are you sure about that? And compared to what?
It's true for a lot of things - especially for electronics, designer clothing and, well, don't get me started on video games...
But, for example, today's average unleaded petrol price in Sydney - 137.9 cents per litre (lowest is 127.9). I wish I was only paying £0.89 per litre for my fuel, even if the Yanks pay hardly anything by comparison.
And my grocery bill is a lot higher since moving to the UK too - I almost [accidentally] turned vegetarian because I was subconsciously converting to AU$ and saying "I'm not paying that!" every time I ventured into the meat section.
The weekly fuel price fluctuations are a reality, but fairly predictable. The school holiday increases are a bit annoying, but on the whole if the pump prices are lower mid week, then fill your tank mid week - simples
