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 13 December 2023), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 35 cents per litre (cpl) to 202.4 cpl with Coles Express, BP, Caltex and EG Ampol hiking up to 213.9 cpl; Ampol up to 212.9 cpl; United and 7-Eleven up to 209.9 cpl; and Vibe up to 209.5 cpl.


Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 39 individual sites offering prices below 166 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:

  • 161.9 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 161.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (Costco sites are membership based) and 162.5 cpl at Atlas Fuel Ascot in the South; and
  • 159.3 cpl at Burk Alkimos and Burk Bassendean in the North.


Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 161.9 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 158.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport and 162.3 cpl at Vibe Ascot in the South; and
  • 159.2 cpl at X Convenience Alkimos 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.
