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 30 August 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 31 cents per litre (cpl) to 218.7 cpl with Ampol, BP, Caltex, Coles Express and EG Ampol hiking up to 229.9 cpl; Puma up to 229.7 cpl; 7-Eleven up to 225.9 cpl; United up to 223.9 cpl; and Vibe up to 223.5 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 30 individual sites offering prices below 187 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 49 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $29 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 183.9 cpl at Ampol Foodary Midvale in the East;
  • 181.7 cpl at 7-Eleven Booragoon in the South; and
  • 181.7 cpl at 7-Eleven Balcatta in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 184.7 cpl at Atlas Fuel Forrestfield in the East;
  • 180.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 183.3 cpl at Burk Camillo and Vibe Kwinana OPT in the South; and
  • 183.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos, Metro Malaga 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.
