This announcement is for:

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 14 cents per litre (cpl) to 132.8 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 13 December 2016, most Caltex Woolworths, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 136.9 cpl (an increase of 17 cpl). Most BP and Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price to 133.9 cpl and most United sites to 133.7 cpl.

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

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still 30 sites selling below 123 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 25 cpl, which means you can save up to $15 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 110.6 cpl at Puma Midvale in the East;
  • 110.6 cpl at Puma Parmelia in the South; and
  • 110.5 cpl at Puma Wanneroo in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 111.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Midvale in the East;
  • 116.5 cpl at Peak Kwinana in the South; and
  • 113.5 cpl at 7-Eleven Malaga 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 37,500 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
