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 27 September 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 29 cents per litre (cpl) to 222.9 cpl with 7-Eleven hiking up to 235.9 cpl; BP up to 234.9 cpl; Caltex up to 233.9 cpl; Coles Express, EG Ampol and Ampol up to 229.9 cpl; Vibe up to 229.5 cpl; United up to 224.9 cpl; and Puma up to 213.7 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 27 individual sites offering prices below 192 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:
- 189.5 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
- 189.3 cpl at Burk Camillo, United Bibra Lake and United South Lake in the South; and
- 188.5 cpl at Liberty Tapping and Petro Fuels Bassendean in the North.
Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
- 189.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Sawyers Valley and Shell High Wycombe in the East;
- 187.5 cpl at Petro Fuels Seville Grove the South; and
- 186.9 cpl at Petro Fuels Bassendean in the North.
