This article introduces two retail fuel price databases in Australia, FuelWatch and FuelCheck. Each dataset consists of a complete panel of station‐level prices over time and across stations, and they are available for public access via web download. We provide background on how the two databases were established, describe their data‐generating processes, review some existing studies that utilise these data, and provide suggestions for future potential use.
