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 15 December 2021), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 33 cents per litre (cpl) to 177.2 cpl. Coles Express hiking by up to 46 cpl up to 189.9 cpl; Caltex/Ampol and BP up to 187.9 cpl; Vibe up to 187.7 cpl; Caltex Woolworths up to 185.9 cpl; Puma up to 185.7 cpl; 7-Eleven up to 179.9 cpl; and United up to 176.9 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 33 individual sites offering prices below 146 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 52 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $31 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 139.7 cpl at Puma Midvale in the East;
  • 138.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Cockburn Central in the South; and
  • 139.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood, Puma Madeley and Puma Mount Lawley in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 141.9 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 137.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 140.5 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake and Caltex Woolworths Southern River in the South; and
  • 139.9 cpl at Liberty Landsdale in the North.
