Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by about 10 cents per litre tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Thursday 6 November 2014, most BP sites are increasing their ULP prices by 12 cents per litre (cpl) to 147.9 cpl; the majority of  Puma Energy sites by 13 cpl to 146.9 cpl; most Gull, Caltex Woolworths, Caltex and Coles Express sites up to 145.9 cpl and the majority of Peak sites up to 144.9 cpl.

Perth’s weekly petrol price cycle results in prices, on average, being cheapest on Tuesday and Wednesday and at their most expensive on Thursday and Friday – that’s why we recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still more than 30 sites selling below 134 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced site is 18 cpl, which means you can save up to $10 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 130.7 cpl at Better Choice Stratton in the East;
  • 130.5 cpl at United South Lake in the South; and
  • 130.5 cpl at United Edgewater, United Mt Lawley, United Northbridge and United Hepburn Heights in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 130.8 cpl at Puma Energy El Caballo Roadhouse in the East;
  • 129.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Southern River and Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 129.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Whitfords and Caltex Woolworths Joondalup Winton Rd in the North.

Drivers can head to the mobile compatible www.fuelwatch.wa.gov.au site to find the cheapest fuel in their area. Log on after 2.30pm each day to compare today’s and tomorrow’s prices. You can also sign up for free emails along with the 40,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 550 808.
