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 4 October 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 30 cents per litre (cpl) to 219.2 cpl with 7-Eleven, BP, Caltex and EG Ampol hiking up to 229.9 cpl; Puma up to 229.7 cpl; Vibe up to 229.5 cpl; Coles Express up to 225.9 cpl; Ampol up to 223.9 cpl; and United up to 219.5 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 28 individual sites offering prices below 188 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 50 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $30 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 183.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Midvale in the East;
  • 181.3 cpl at Burk Camillo in the South; and
  • 182.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos and X Convenience Alkimos in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 182.4 cpl at Atlas Fuel Midvale in the East;
  • 179.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Ascot in the South; and
  • 181.8 cpl at Petro Fuels Bassendean 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.
