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 12 June 2024), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 35 cents per litre (cpl) to 201.9 cpl with BP hiking up to 219.9 cpl; Ampol, EG Ampol and Coles Express/Reddy Express up to 217.9 cpl; Vibe up to 217.7 cpl; Caltex and 7-Eleven up to 215.9 cpl; and United up to 195.9 cpl.


Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 31 individual sites offering prices below 166 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:

  • 163.9 cpl at Ampol Foodary High Wycombe, BP Crystal Brook (Lesmurdie), BP Forrestfield, Caltex Bedfordale and EG Ampol Brabham in the East;
  • 160.5 cpl at EG Ampol South Lake in the South; and
  • 160.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos in the North.


Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 164.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Forrestfield in the East;
  • 158.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (Costco sites are membership based) and 160.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Vibe Ascot in the South; and
  • 160.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos in the North.
