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 3 May 2023), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 24 cents per litre (cpl) to 195.9 cpl. Coles Express and 7-Eleven hiking by 36-39 cpl up to 205.9 cpl; EG Ampol, BP, Caltex/Puma and United up to 203.9 cpl; Vibe up to 203.5 cpl; and Ampol up to 199.9 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 35 individual sites offering prices below 170 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.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 167.9 cpl at BP 2go Bellevue, BP 2go Morrison Road and FastFuel 24/7 in the East;
  • 165.9 cpl at EG Ampol South Lake in the South; and
  • 161.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 167.9 cpl at FastFuel 24/7 in the East;
  • 164.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 166.9 cpl at Liberty Naval Base in the South; and
  • 159.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos and X Convenience Alkimos in the North.

To find the cheapest fuel at any time, check the mobile compatible site which features an interactive map. After 2.30pm each day both today’s and tomorrow’s prices are available.
