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 31 January 2024), the average price of Perth’s regular unleaded petrol (ULP) will increase by over 34 cents per litre (cpl) to 207.3 cpl with Caltex hiking up to 223.9 cpl; BP up to 221.9 cpl; Ampol up to 219.9 cpl; EG Ampol up to 217.9 cpl; Coles Express and 7-Eleven up to 215.9 cpl; United up to 213.9 cpl; and Vibe up to 213.5 cpl.


Despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 31 individual sites offering prices below 172 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 71 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $42 on a 60 litre tank.


Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 163.9 cpl at Caltex Midvale in the East;
  • 152.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina (Costco sites are membership based) and 153.5 cpl at Liberty Naval Base and United Naval Base in the South; and
  • 163.9 cpl at Caltex Madeley in the North.


Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 167.5 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 152.7 cpl at Costco Casuarina and 153.5 cpl at Liberty Naval Base in the South; and
  • 167.5 cpl at Liberty Tapping 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.
