Cost of petrol

Hi all, does anyone know the cost of petrol in Samoa. Is it cheaper on Upolo than Savaii? I am waiting on a Jason's map that is being posted out to me and I am hoping that will have petrol stations marked on it.

The Jason's map does have petrol stations on it, the are very common all over Upolu but a little few and far between on Savaii.

There really aren't any petrol price wars in Samoa so the cost is pretty much the same everywhere. It's equivalent to Aussie prices, in April it was a fraction higher, ie if we pay $1.55 here you'll find it around 3+tala. We struggle to pay it here, God only knows how the poor Samoans cope.

I'm sure I posted in this thread the other day but it appears to have disappeared.....I think the Minister of Finance regulates the cost of petrol in Samoa and updates it every month...in October it was WST3.07 per litre

Thanks for that, a bit cheaper than OZ at the moment, we're approaching $1.60 in country areas.
