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 it is likely motorists will have to wait for two weeks before petrol prices are again at the bottom of the price cycle.
FuelWatch reports that, from 6am tomorrow (Wednesday 9 February 2022), the average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 25 cents per litre (cpl) to 190.3 cpl. Caltex Woolworths, Caltex/Ampol, BP and Coles Express hiking by between 34-38 cpl up to 199.9 cpl; Vibe up to 199.7 cpl; Puma up to 196.7 cpl; and 7-Eleven up to 193.9 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 31 individual sites offering prices below 163 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 40 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $24 on a 60 litre tank.
Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:
- 161.5 cpl at NightOwl Shell Bellevue in the East;
- 159.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Kwinana in the South; and
- 160.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Stirling, Shell Alkimos and United Neerabup in the North.
Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
- 163.9 cpl at FastFuel 24/7 (Forrestfield) in the East;
- 159.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 160.9 cpl at United South Lake in the South; and
- 160.9 cpl at United Neerabup in the North.
