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 15 November 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 34 cents per litre (cpl) to 212.6 cpl with Ampol hiking up to 224.9 cpl; United up to 224.5 cpl; Caltex and Coles Express up to 223.9 cpl; 7-Eleven up to 221.9 cpl; BP and EG Ampol up to 219.9 cpl; and Vibe up to 219.5 cpl.
Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 30 individual sites offering prices below 177 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 55 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $33 on a 60 litre tank.
Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:
- 174.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Forrestfield in the East;
- 172.9 cpl at Atlas Fuel Ascot in the South; and
- 169.9 cpl at X Convenience Alkimos in the North.
Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
- 174.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Forrestfield in the East
- 171.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership based) and 172.5 cpl at Vibe Ascot in the South; and
- 169.3 cpl at X Convenience Alkimos in the North.
