The AAA said it welcomed consultation on possible measures to increase fuel security in Australia.
The Australian Automobile Association (AAA) said it welcomed consultation on possible measures to increase fuel security in Australia.
“Last year the federal government announced a fuel security review which was expected to have reported at the end of 2018. To date, those recommendations have not been made public,” the AAA’s Chief Executive Officer, Michael Bradley said.
“Equally, the AAA welcomes the Opposition’s commitment to embark on a consultation process to ensure our fuel reserve policies meet our national security requirements,” Mr. Bradley said.
He said fuel security was an economy-wide issue that was of interest to motorists, but also the wider transport and logistics, defence, and farming sectors.
“Whatever the ultimate recommendations are from either the government’s or the opposition’s reviews, the AAA looks forward to engaging in discussion regarding Australia’s appropriate response and the ways in which it will have to be paid for.
