Information status

All announcements issued prior to 1 July 2017 were issued by the former Department of Commerce. Announcements listed here are the latest versions available. For more information on this announcement, please contact online@dmirs.wa.gov.au.

This announcement is for: 

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 18 cents per litre (cpl) to 135.5 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 9 May 2017, most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.9 cpl (an increase of 25 cpl). Most Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 137.9 cpl, most United sites to 137.7 cpl, most BP sites to 136.9 cpl, most 7-Eleven sites to 135.9 cpl and most Caltex Woolworths sites to 134.9 cpl.

Perth’s weekly petrol price cycle results in prices, on average, being cheapest on Sunday and Monday and at their most expensive on Tuesday and Wednesday – that’s why FuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still more than 35 sites selling below 126 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 25 cpl, which means you can save up to $15 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 112.4 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 112.4 cpl at Puma Atwell in the South; and
  • 112.4 cpl at Puma Pearsall in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 115.9 cpl at Shell Gidgegannup in the East;
  • 114.5 cpl at 7-Eleven Byford South in the South; and
  • 114.7 cpl at 7-Eleven Malvern Springs (Ellenbrook) in the North.

Drivers can head to the mobile compatible www.fuelwatch.wa.gov.au site to find the cheapest fuel in their area. Log on after 2.30pm each day to compare today’s and tomorrow’s prices. You can also sign up for free emails along with the 24,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
