The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 12 cents per litre (cpl) to 130.7 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 6 December 2016, most Caltex, Caltex Woolworths, Puma and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 133.9 cpl (an increase of 16 cpl by Caltex, Caltex Woolworths and Puma and 15 cpl by Coles Express). Most BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 131.9 cpl and most United sites to 129.7 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 30 sites selling below 121 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 22 cpl, which means you can save up to $13 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 111.5 cpl at Puma Gingers (Upper Swan) in the East;
  • 111.5 cpl at Puma Atwell, Vibe Hamilton Hill, Vibe Spearwood and Vibe Yangebup in the South; and
  • 111.4 cpl at Puma First Avenue Mt Lawley in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 111.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Midvale and BP 2go Morrison Road (Midvale) in the East;
  • 111.9 cpl at BP Connect Palm Springs (Warnbro) and BP Connect Phoenix (Spearwood) in the South; and
  • 115.5 cpl at 7-Eleven Malaga 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.
