Alert to Perth motorists - fill up now to beat the petrol price rise
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 29 June 2022), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 26 cents per litre (cpl) to 223.4 cpl. Coles Express hiking by up to 44 cpl up to 239.9 cpl; BP up to 238.9 cpl; Ampol up to 235.9 cpl; Caltex Woolworths and 7-Eleven up to 229.9 cpl; Puma up to 229.7 cpl; and Vibe up to 229.5 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 41 individual sites offering prices below 196 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 47 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $28 on a 60 litre tank.
Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:
- 195.7 cpl at Puma Bellevue and Puma Midvale in the East;
- 193.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Kwinana in the South; and
- 193.9 cpl at BP Morley in the North.
Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
- 195.5 cpl at NightOwl Shell Bellevue in the East;
- 192.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 193.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Kwinana and Vibe Kwinana OPT in the South; and
- 194.3 cpl at United Ellenbrook and United Tapping in the North.
