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 12 April 2023), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 24 cents per litre (cpl) to 198.8 cpl. Coles Express, Caltex/Puma and BP hiking by 34-38 cpl up to 209.9 cpl; 7-Eleven and Ampol up to 205.9 cpl; and EG Ampol, United and Vibe up to 203.9 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 35 individual sites offering prices below 174 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 43 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $25 on a 60 litre tank.
