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 8 March 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 22 cents per litre (cpl) to 191.5 cpl. Ampol, Coles Express and EG Ampol hiking by 38 to 40 cpl up to 205.9 cpl; 7-Eleven, Caltex/Puma and BP up to 203.9 cpl; Vibe up to 199.7 cpl; and United up to 196.9 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 27 individual sites offering prices below 168 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 46 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $27 on a 60 litre tank.
