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 1 May 2024), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 32 cents per litre (cpl) to 214.8 cpl with 7-Eleven, Ampol, BP, Caltex and Coles Express hiking up to 229.9 cpl; Vibe up to 229.5 cpl; EG Ampol up to 227.9 cpl; and United up to 212.9 cpl.


Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 30 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 53 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $32 on a 60 litre tank.


Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 178.9 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield, Coles Express Middle Swan and Reddy Express Upper Swan Roadhouse in the East;
  • 176.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (Costco sites are membership based) and 177.9 cpl at Ampol Foodary Baldivis, Ampol Foodary O’Connor and Ampol Foodary South Lake in the South; and
  • 178.5 cpl at United Ellenbrook, United Lexia and United Osborne Park in the North.


Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 181.5 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 176.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina  and Costco Perth Airport, and 179.3 cpl at Burk Camillo in the South; and
  • 179.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos, Burk Landsdale and Burk Malaga 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.
