The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 16 cents per litre (cpl) to 116.7 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that, on Tuesday 23 February 2016, most Puma and BP sites are increasing their ULP prices to 119.9 cpl, an increase of 22 cpl by Puma and 21 cpl by BP. The majority of Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 118.9 cpl; most Coles Express and Caltex sites to 117.9 cpl; and most United sites to 114.7 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 we recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still over 30 sites selling below 110 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 35 cpl, which means you can save up to $21 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 95.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Midvale in the East;
  • 94.5 cpl at Caltex StarMart Secret Harbour, Caltex StarMart Warnbro and Caltex Woolworths Warnbro Fair in the South; and
  • 95.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 102.0 cpl at Chidlow Growers Mart Liquor Store in the East;
  • 94.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 95.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka 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.
