Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for:

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by 22 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 23 May 2017, most Caltex Woolworths and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.9 cpl (an increase of 29 cpl and 27 cpl, respectively). Most Caltex and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 138.9 cpl, most 7-Eleven and BP sites to 136.9 cpl and most United sites to 134.7 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 FuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still more than 30 sites selling below 126 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 27 cpl, which means you can save up to $16 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 109.9 cpl at Caltex StarMart Midvale and Caltex StarShop Swan View in the East;
  • 109.9 cpl at 17 Caltex sites in the South; and
  • 109.9 cpl at 19 Caltex sites in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 112.9 cpl at Better Choice Bellevue in the East;
  • 112.9 cpl at Peak Kwinana in the South; and
  • 119.5 cpl at Puma Neerabup 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 22,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
