Re: SA Economy

I thought the GST was split based on things like the states demographic.

Re: Petrol Station Owners

I thought the old bottle shop at the airport was 24/7 decades ago and closed.
I wonder if PALS at Parafield could go 24/7 if they wanted? I assume they are not controlled by SA trading laws.

When I said the next thing I did not mean the next thing that fuels vehicles. I meant whatever is sellable goods or service. As cigarettes are phased out Smokemarts did not solely depend on e-cigarettes, they moved more in to the gift market. As car fuel is phased out they might move in to accountin...

Re: Petrol Station Owners

They are a convenience store where one of the products is fuel. Fuel is also a point of difference draw card to bring people to the store. If fuel goes away they will just sell the next thing.

Previously the rule was the you must end a turn in the lane you started from. eg turning right from right most lane means you enter new road on right most lane. Turn left from left most lane mean...
