Business / companyConsumerMotor 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 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 26 April 2023), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 22 cents per litre (cpl) to 197.8 cpl. Coles Express and Caltex/Puma hiking by 34-38 cpl up to 209.9 cpl; 7-Eleven up to 205.9 cpl; Vibe up to 205.7 cpl; BP up to 204.9 cpl; and Ampol and EG Ampol 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 42 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $25 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 169.9 cpl at BP 2go Bellevue and BP 2go Morrison Road in the East;
  • 169.9 cpl at BP 2go Armadale, BP Canning Vale, BP Canning Vale OPT, BP Connect Kwinana Hub, BP Connect Myaree, BP Huntingdale, BP Naval Base, BP Thornlie and BP Welshpool in the South; and
  • 169.9 cpl at BP Connect Wellington Rd, BP Ellenbrook and BP Jindalee in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 171.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Forrestfield and FastFuel 24/7 in the East;
  • 167.9 cpl at Liberty Naval Base in the South; and
  • 168.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos in the North.
