Fuel price advice for Perth drivers

Issue Date: Wednesday, 29 February 2012

Fill up today if you want to pay less for your petrol – that’s the advice from FuelWatch.

On Thursday 1 March 2012, most Caltex Woolworths, Coles Express, Caltex and BP sites are increasing their ULP price 13 cents per litre (cpl) to a maximum of 152.9 cpl. Many Gull and Peak sites are increasing their prices up to 149.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan ULP average will be 149.1 cpl, however there will be over 40 Perth sites selling below 140.0 cpl.

Given that Perth ULP prices follow a weekly cycle, with Thursday and Friday being the most expensive days, FuelWatch recommends filling up today and paying no more than 140.8 cpl. 

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  •          138.2 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  •          135.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Murdoch and Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  •          135.1 cpl at Coles Express Clarkson, Coles Express Duncraig and Coles Express Mount Lawley in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  •          135.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Midvale in the East;
  •          135.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake and Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  •          135.1 cpl at Coles Express Clarkson, Coles Express Duncraig and Coles Express Mount Lawley in the North.
