Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

Motorists in Perth and Mandurah are advised to fill up now if they need to, with petrol prices set to rise tomorrow.

FuelWatch reports that, from 6am tomorrow (Wednesday 10 August 2022), Perth’s average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 24 cents per litre (cpl) to 181.3 cpl. Coles Express and Ampol hiking between 37-42 cpl up to 195.9 cpl; Puma up to 195.7 cpl; BP up to 191.9 cpl; 7-Eleven and Caltex Woolworths up to 189.9 cpl; and Vibe up to 189.7 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 35 individual sites offering prices below 154 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 50 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $30 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 151.7 cpl at Puma Wattle Grove in the East;
  • 148.2 cpl at Atlas Fuel Welshpool in the South; and
  • 151.7 cpl at Puma Landsdale, Puma Madeley, Puma Merriwa, Puma Neerabup and Puma Yanchep in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 151.9 cpl at FastFuel 24/7 (Forrestfield) in the East;
  • 147.7 cpl at Atlas Fuel Welshpool in the South; and
  • 149.5 cpl at Liberty Banksia Grove and Liberty Landsdale 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.
