Motorists in Perth and Mandurah are advised to fill up now if they need to, with petrol prices set to rise tomorrow. After today motorists will likely have to wait a week before petrol prices are again at the bottom of the price cycle.


FuelWatch reports that, from 6am tomorrow (Wednesday 24 April 2024), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 31 cents per litre (cpl) to 215.5 cpl with Ampol hiking up to 231.9 cpl; 7-Eleven, BP, Caltex and Coles Express up to 229.9 cpl; EG Ampol up to 225.9 cpl; Vibe up to 223.5 cpl; and United up to 215.9 cpl.


Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 31 individual sites offering prices below 185 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 56 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $33 on a 60 litre tank.


Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 178.9 cpl at Ampol Foodary High Wycombe in the East;
  • 175.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (Costco sites are membership based), 179.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and 179.9 cpl at Ampol Foodary Cockburn Central, Ampol Foodary Riverton, Ampol Foodary Willetton, Ampol Foodary Yangebup, EG Ampol South Lake, Liberty Beckenham, Liberty East Rockingham, Liberty O’Connor and United South Lake in the South; and
  • 179.5 cpl at Liberty Tapping in the North.


Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 184.7 cpl at Vibe Forrestfield in the East;
  • 175.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport, 179.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and 179.9 cpl at Ampol Foodary Yangebup in the South; and
  • 181.3 cpl at X Convenience Alkimos in the North.
