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 10 May 2023), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 25 cents per litre (cpl) to 191.7 cpl. BP hiking by up to 40 cpl up to 201.9 cpl; Coles Express, Ampol, 7-Eleven, EG Ampol and Caltex/Puma up to 199.9 cpl; Vibe up to 199.5 cpl; and United up to 193.9 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 31 individual sites offering prices below 165 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.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 159.9 cpl at BP 2go Bellevue and BP 2go Morrison Road in the East;
  • 159.9 cpl at BP Connect Myaree, BP Connect Palm Springs, BP Huntingdale and BP Thornlie in the South; and
  • 159.9 cpl at BP Ellenbrook, BP Jindalee and BP Malaga in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 161.9 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 158.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 162.5 cpl at United Perth Airport in the South; and
  • 158.3 cpl at Burk 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.
