This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

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 1 June 2022), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 23 cents per litre (cpl) to 210 cpl. BP hiking by up to 40 cpl up to 227.9 cpl; Coles Express up to 221.9 cpl; Caltex Woolworths and Ampol up to 219.9 cpl; Puma up to 219.7 cpl; Vibe up to 217.7 cpl; and 7-Eleven up to 215.9 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 45 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $27 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 183.9 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 182.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 182.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 182.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 183.9 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 182.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 183.3 cpl at United Leda, United Maddington, United South Lake and United Southern River in the South; and
  • 182.3 cpl at X Convenience Alkimos in the North.
