The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 17 cents per litre (cpl) to 122.1 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 18 October 2016, most Caltex Woolworths, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 129.9 cpl (an increase of 28.1 cpl by Caltex Woolworths, 27 cpl by Coles Express and 23 cpl by Puma). Most BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 125.9 cpl and most Caltex sites to 119.9 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 40 sites selling below 110 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 39 cpl, which means you can save up to $23 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 99.9 cpl at Puma Bellevue and Puma Midvale in the East;
  • 90.1 cpl at Caltex StarMart Canning Vale, Caltex StarMart Thornlie, Caltex StarShop Bannister Road, Caltex StarShop Livingston, Caltex StarShop South Lake, Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale, Caltex Woolworths South Lake, Caltex Woolworths Southern River and Coles Express Southern River in the South; and
  • 90.1 cpl at Caltex StarMart Northlands, Caltex StarMart Yanchep, Caltex StarShop Balga, Caltex Woolworths Alkimos, Caltex Woolworths Greenwood, Caltex Woolworths Joondalup Winton Road, Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka, Coles Express Clarkson, Coles Express Duncraig and Coles Express Mount Lawley in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 106.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 90.1 cpl at Coles Express Southern River in the South; and
  • 90.1 cpl at Coles Express Clarkson, Coles Express Duncraig and Coles Express Mount Lawley in the North.
