The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission is concerned that BP is not as competitive as Woolworths when it comes to fuel pricing. The ACCC is considering BP’s proposed $A1.8 billion purchase of Woolworth’s petrol stations, which was announced at the end of 2016. If the deal goes ahead, it would make BP the largest fuel retailer and wholesaler in Australia. BP Australia president Andy Holmes says it is keen to work with the ACCC to address any concerns it may have about the transaction.
