To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

The Labor Government's policy of automatically increasing the A.B.R.D. fuel levy when the C.P.I. increases,

perpetrates inflation,

increases the cost of goods to country people,

reduces the living standards of all Australians,

short changes motorists as the extra funds raised are not spent on roads.

Your petitioners humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled, urge the Government to:

Give Australian motorists a better deal and immediately repeal those legislative provisions that automatically increase the price of petrol when the C.P.I. increases.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
