Located between Newman and Meekatharra, Kumarina is usually a stopover destination - a welcome break from the monotony of driving along the Great Northern Highway.
But according to the state government run website Fuel Watch, the fuel price has hit an all time high - $2.07 per litre. Hardest hit will be tourists who have no choice but to stop and fill up. Bear in mind, too that this price is for normal unleaded petrol. Premium will be higher and diesel is listed at a staggering $2.25/litre.
A sign of things to come? Let's hope not.
