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 23 March 2022), the average Perth price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 21 cents per litre (cpl) to an all-time record high 212.9 cpl. 7-Eleven hiking by up to 42 cpl up to 229.9 cpl; Caltex Woolworths and Coles Express up to 221.9 cpl; Puma up to 221.7 cpl; Ampol and BP up to 219.9 cpl; and Vibe up to 219.7 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 28 individual sites offering prices below 188 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 52 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $31 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 186.5 cpl at NightOwl Shell Bellevue and NightOwl Shell Kalamunda in the East;
  • 183.9 cpl at BP Redcliffe in the South; and
  • 183.9 cpl at X Convenience Alkimos in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 186.3 cpl at Better Choice Bellevue in the East;
  • 177.9 cpl at United South Lake in the South; and
  • 179.9 cpl at United Bassendean, United Ellenbrook and United Mt Lawley in the North.

To find the cheapest fuel at any time, check the mobile compatible site which features an interactive map. After 2.30pm each day both today’s and tomorrow’s prices are available.
