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 9 August 2023), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 28 cents per litre (cpl) to 208.3 cpl. 7-Eleven, Caltex/Puma and BP hiking by between 40-44 cpl up to 219.9 cpl; Coles Express up to 217.9 cpl; Ampol and EG Ampol up to 215.9 cpl; Vibe up to 213.5 cpl; and United up to 209.9 cpl.


Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 34 individual sites offering prices below 180 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 45 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $27 on a 60 litre tank.


Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 175.7 cpl at 7-Eleven Midvale and Atlas Fuel Sawyers Valley in the East;
  • 174.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 175.7 cpl at 7-Eleven Bentley, 7-Eleven Booragoon and 7-Eleven Cockburn Central in the South; and
  • 175.7 cpl at 7-Eleven Bassendean in the North.


Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 177.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Midvale, Atlas Fuel Sawyers Valley and Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 174.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 175.3 cpl at Burk Camillo in the South; and
  • 175.9 cpl at Liberty Banksia Grove and Liberty Tapping in the North.
