The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by over 18 cents per litre (cpl) to 146 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 9 January 2018, most Caltex Woolworths, 7-Eleven, BP, Puma, Caltex and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 149.9 cpl (an increase of between 20 and 25 cpl) and most Vibe sites are increasing their ULP price to 143.7 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 over 30 sites selling below 130 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 26 cpl, which means you can save up to $15 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 123.7 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 121.5 cpl at Puma Warnbro in the South; and
  • 121.5 cpl at Puma Joondalup in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 124.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 123.7 cpl at United Armadale, United Hamilton Hill, United Leda and United South Lake in the South; and
  • 123.7 cpl at United 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 14,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
