The State Government is considering forcing petrol stations to use simplified fuel price boards to combat misleading advertising of discounted fuel prices.
Consumer Protection is taking submissions on whether WA should adopt a national proposal to standardise roadside fuel boards.
Under the proposal, only undiscounted prices could be shown on boards, though discounted offers could still be advertised.
All prices would need to be equally prominent and only in-stock fuel prices could be included.
Consumer Protection commissioner Anne Driscoll said some drivers were misled by discounted petrol advertising.The proposed standard would apply only to retailers who used the boards and would not make them compulsory for all stations.
