Motorists in Perth and Mandurah are advised to fill up now if they need to, with petrol prices set to rise tomorrow. 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 22 February 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 23 cents per litre (cpl) to 191.5 cpl. Coles Express hiking by up to 44 cpl up to 209.9 cpl; Caltex and EG Ampol up to 205.9 cpl; Puma up to 205.7 cpl; Vibe up to 205.5 cpl; 7-Eleven and Ampol up to 203.9 cpl; and BP and United up to 199.9 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 33 individual sites offering prices below 167 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.
