The McMillon family in Sydney’s West will celebrate the unexpected cash injection from Josh Frydenberg’s petrol excise cut by buying a small portion of a staple vegetable from their local Woolworth’s this week.
With petrol prices set to tumble by an expected 15 cents a litre, many families will now be able to afford luxuries, like food.
“Consider our cost-of-living pressures eased! We’re splashing out!” a jubilant Sally McMillon explained after hearing about the budget windfall, which she expects will save her north of $4 a week.
She said the family had their eye on a capsicum too. “Although it looks like we’ll need to save up for that”.
