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 ABRD fuel levy when the C.I.P. increases,

increases the price of petrol

perpetuates 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 urge the Government to give Australian motorists a better deal and immediately repeal those laws that automatically increase the price of petrol when the C.P.I. increases.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
