Puma fuel too dear for Gladstone's bowsers

PUMA fuel, heralded by former premier Campbell Newman as having the power to bring prices down at the bowser, proved the most expensive option for bulk fuel.

Three companies responded to Gladstone Regional Council's tender for 18 months worth of fuel.

The tender documents show Puma's price for diesel fuel was not competitive.

At $190,118.26 Caltex was the cheapest.

The estimated price over the 18 month period for Caltex was also the cheapest and they won the tender.

But there was a $10,000 difference between that and Puma's offer of $200,494.

Puma's unleaded was also more, but only by $44.
