Consumer and Business Services compliance and enforcement officers are heading to the Mid-North and Spencer Gulf to ensure petrol stations are complying with the state government's real-time petrol price monitoring trial.

Attorney-General Vickie Chapman says the introduction of real-time petrol price monitoring has assisted motorists find the cheapest prices to fill their tanks, which in some cases could save motorists around $330 a year.

"Ensuring petrol stations in regional areas are complying with the scheme, and updating their prices within 30 minutes, in line with the law, is critical to this," say Ms Chapman.

Areas which are being targeted in the upcoming weeks include Port Pirie, Port Augusta, Whyalla, and the Flinders Ranges.

To track the real-time fuel prices and make cheaper choices, motorists are encouraged to use apps, such as Fuel Price Australia, PetrolSpy, MotorMouth, Pumped or the RAA App.
