Some of our neighbourhoods and localities are genuinely saturated with petrol stations.

This is not a good thing.
Our state, our city, our future.

A century ago, every "corner store" sold tins of petrol. Now, every petrol station sells icecreams and coffee. Somewhere in between, blacksmiths became service stations, then closed as well. In a few decades, petrol might not be the thing it is today, if internal combustion engines become old technology, just like steam engines are now.

Things are not like they used to be, and not like they will be in future either.

If anyone knows have petrol stations always been able to trade 24/7 (or when did this come in) and so be excluded from the normal regulations/opening hours of say a supermarket, deli etc?

Is it specifically that they are petrol stations, or is any shop below a certain floor size allowed to trade any time it likes, and fuel outlets are what we notice at the moment because they have a large outdoor footprint as well?

Couldn’t find a relevant thread, but the Failed Bunnings site (Former Panorama TAFE site) is now for sale again with Colliers as of the last day or so.
