Motorists in Perth and Mandurah are advised to fill up now if they need to, with petrol prices set to rise tomorrow. Over the past few weeks, the pattern of petrol pricing by the major fuel companies shows a full return to weekly price cycles. After today, motorists will likely have to wait a week before petrol prices are again at the bottom of the price cycle.
FuelWatch reports that, from 6am tomorrow (Wednesday 4 January 2023), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 26 cents per litre (cpl) to 190.3 cpl. Caltex/Puma hiking by up to 44 cpl up to 203.9 cpl; Ampol, BP and Coles Express up to 199.9 cpl; Vibe up to 199.5 cpl; EG Ampol and 7-Eleven up to 195.9 cpl; and United up to 189.9 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 34 individual sites offering prices below 162 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 49 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $29 on a 60 litre tank.
