Alert to Perth motorists - fill up now to beat the petrol price rise

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 28 December 2022), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 23 cents per litre (cpl) to 184.5 cpl. Caltex/Puma and 7-Eleven hiking by up to 42 cpl up to 199.9 cpl; United, EG Ampol, Ampol and Coles Express up to 195.9 cpl; BP up to 193.9 cpl; and Vibe up to 189.5 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 25 individual sites offering prices below 157 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:

  • 155.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Forrestfield in the East;
  • 151.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina (membership required) and 152.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 153.3 cpl at Vibe Kwinana Town Centre in the South; and
  • 152.5 cpl at Liberty Tapping and United Tapping in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 155.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Forrestfield in the East;
  • 152.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina (membership required) and 153.3 cpl at Vibe Kwinana Town Centre in the South; and
  • 152.5 cpl at Liberty Tapping and United Tapping in the North.
