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.

FuelWatch reports that, from 6am tomorrow (Wednesday 7 September 2022), Perth’s average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 23 cents per litre (cpl) to 177.4 cpl. 7-Eleven, Ampol, BP, Caltex Woolworths and Coles Express hiking between 33-41 cpl up to 189.9 cpl; Puma up to 189.7 cpl; and Vibe up to 189.5 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 57 individual sites offering prices below 152 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 51 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $31 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 149.5 cpl at NightOwl Shell Bellevue in the East;
  • 147.9 cpl at Coles Express Myaree, Coles Express Waikiki, Coles Express Southern River and Coles Express Bentley in the South; and
  • 148.9 cpl at Coles Express Warwick, Coles Express Kingsley; Coles Express Ellenbrook, Coles Express Dianella and Coles Express Bayswater in the North.

  • 149.5 cpl at NightOwl Shell Bellevue in the East;
