Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for:

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 17 cents per litre (cpl) to 134.2 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 13 June 2017, most 7-Eleven sites are increasing their ULP price to 138.9 cpl (an increase of 25 cpl). Most Puma, Caltex Woolworths, BP and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 137.9 cpl and most Caltex 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 FuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still more than 30 sites selling below 120 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 26 cpl, which means you can save up to $15 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 109.1 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 108.8 cpl at Puma Maddington in the South; and
  • 105.9 cpl at Caltex StarMart Ashby in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 114.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 113.7 cpl at United Leda and United South Lake in the South; and
  • 113.7 cpl at United Ellenbrook, United Lexia, United Mt Lawley and United Osborne Park 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 21,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
