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 15 May 2024), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 32 cents per litre (cpl) to 207.7 cpl with Vibe hiking up to 227.5 cpl; Coles Express and Ampol up to 225.9 cpl; Caltex up to 223.9 cpl; BP and EG Ampol up to 221.9 cpl; and 7-Eleven up to 219.9 cpl.


Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 26 individual sites offering prices below 174 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 61 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $36 on a 60-litre tank.


Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 169.9 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield, Coles Express Middle Swan and Reddy Express Upper Swan Roadhouse in the East;
  • 169.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina (Costco sites are membership based) and Costco Perth Airport and 169.9 cpl at 28 sites in the South; and
  • 167.3 cpl X Convenience Alkimos in the North.


Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 173.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Forrestfield in the East;
  • 168.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Costco Perth Airport and 171.3 cpl at Vibe Kwinana OPT in the South; and
  • 166.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos in the North.
