Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by 15 cents per litre (cpl) to 136 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 21 March 2017, most Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.9 cpl (an increase of 18 cpl). Most Caltex, Caltex Woolworths, Puma and BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 137.9, most United sites to 137.7 cpl and most 7-Eleven sites to 136.9 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 over 30 sites selling below 126 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 24 cpl, which means you can save up to $14 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 115.1 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 113.1 cpl at Puma Hamilton Hill in the South; and
  • 113.1 cpl at Puma Guildford and Puma Landsdale in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 116.0 cpl at Chidlow Growers Mart Liquor Store in the East;
  • 115.4 cpl at Vibe Hamilton Hill, Vibe Spearwood and Vibe Yangebup in the South; and
  • 117.7 cpl at 7-Eleven Malvern Springs 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 31,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
