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 July 2023), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 29 cents per litre (cpl) to 199.6 cpl. BP hiking by up to 44 cpl up to 213.9 cpl; Coles Express, Ampol, Caltex/Puma and EG Ampol up to 209.9 cpl; 7-Eleven up to 207.9 cpl; United up to 199.9 cpl; and Vibe up to 199.5 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 26 individual sites offering prices below 169 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 55 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $33 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 162.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Midvale in the East;
  • 159.9 cpl at United Perth Airport in the South; and
  • 161.5 cpl at Liberty Tapping in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 164.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Midvale in the East;
  • 158.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 165.5 cpl at Liberty Gosnells and United Perth Airport in the South; and
  • 163.9 cpl at Liberty Banksia Grove 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.
