This announcement is for:

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 1 November 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by 33 cents per litre (cpl) to 215.4 cpl with Coles Express, BP and Caltex hiking up to 225.9 cpl; United up to 225.5 cpl; 7-Eleven, Ampol and EG Ampol up to 223.9 cpl; Puma up to 223.7 cpl; and Vibe up to 221.5 cpl.

Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 32 individual sites offering prices below 180 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 52 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $31 on a 60 litre tank.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 177.1 cpl at Vibe Upper Swan View in the East;
  • 175.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (Costco sites are membership based) and 176.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Ascot in the South; and
  • 173.3 cpl at X Convenience Alkimos in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 179.3 cpl at Vibe Forrestfield in the East;
  • 174.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport and 176.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and Vibe Ascot in the South; and
  • 173.3 cpl at X Convenience Alkimos in the North.

After 2.30pm each day both today’s and tomorrow’s prices are available. Also, get a daily update by subscribing to free email alerts or phone 1300 30 40 54.
