Fuel reserves: only 30 days of oil left in Australia

Tags: politics global


Conflict in Syria has highlighted concerns at the amount of fuel Australia has reserved, which is only enough to last 30 days.

The US, UK and France launched a joint strike on Syria over the weekend, as a signal against the use of chemical weapons. This action has led to concern of a broader, ongoing conflict, which may undermine Australia’s energy security.

The nation’s energy security is currently dependent on regional refineries and oil flows from the Middle East.

Brian Carlton speaks to Liberal Senator and Retired Major General, Jim Molan, about the strikes on Syria and our alarmingly low fuel reserves.
