Alert to Perth motorists - fill up now to beat the petrol price rise
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 6 September 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 31 cents per litre (cpl) to 220.1 cpl with 7-Eleven, Coles Express, BP, EG Ampol, Ampol and Caltex hiking up to 229.9 cpl; Puma up to 229.7 cpl; Vibe up to 228.9 cpl; and United up to 227.9 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 29 individual sites offering prices below 190 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 48 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $28 on a 60 litre tank.
Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:
- 185.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Wattle Grove, BP 2go Morrison Road (Midvale) and BP Forrestfield in the East;
- 182.7 cpl at 7-Eleven Booragoon in the South; and
- 183.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Balcatta, 7-Eleven Malvern Springs, 7-Eleven Stirling, Coles Express Duncraig, Coles Express Ellenbrook, Coles Express Kingsley, Coles Express Osborne Park, EG Ampol Banksia Grove and EG Ampol Greenwood in the North.
Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
- 186.3 cpl at Vibe Forrestfield in the East;
- 181.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport, 183.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina (Costco sites are membership based) and 184.7 cpl at Vibe Ascot and Vibe Kwinana OPT in the South; and
- 184.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos in the North.
