Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 14 cents per litre (cpl) to 136.4 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 13 October 2015, most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP prices by 22 cpl to 141.9 cpl. The majority of BP sites are also increasing their ULP price to 141.9 cpl; most Caltex Woolworths, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing to 139.9 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 we recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still over 30 sites selling below 120 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 31 cpl, which means you can save up to $19 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 110.7 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 110.7 cpl at Puma Warnbro in the South; and
  • 110.7 cpl at Puma First Avenue Mt Lawley in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 116.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 111.1 cpl at Puma Forrestdale and Puma Lynwood in the South; and
  • 111.1 cpl at Puma Gwelup 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 37,500 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
