Alert to Perth motorists - fill up now to beat the petrol price rise
Motorists in Perth and Mandurah are advised to fill up now if they need to, with petrol prices set to rise tomorrow. After today it is likely motorists will have to wait for two weeks before petrol prices are again at the bottom of the price cycle.
FuelWatch reports that, from 6am tomorrow (Wednesday 17 November 2021), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by more than 28 cents per litre (cpl) to 182.4 cpl. Coles Express hiking by up to 39 cpl up to 193.9 cpl; BP up to 191.9 cpl; Caltex/Ampol up to 189.9 cpl; Vibe and Puma up to 189.7 cpl; and Caltex Woolworths and 7-Eleven up to 187.9 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 36 individual sites offering prices below 154 cpl, so consumers should check the FuelWatch website to find the lowest price near them. Buying fuel from the cheapest site rather than the most expensive, a difference of 43 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $25 on a 60 litre tank.
Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:
- 150.7 cpl at Vibe Forrestfield in the East;
- 149.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale and Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
- 149.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Morley Galleria in the North.
Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
- 152.5 cpl at Vibe Upper Swan IGA Xpress in the East;
- 150.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 151.3 cpl at Vibe Kwinana OPT in the South; and
- 152.5 cpl at Vibe Morley in the North.
