Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 24 cents per litre (cpl) to 135.2 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 15 August 2017, most Caltex Woolworths, Caltex and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.9 cpl (an increase of between 30 and 33 cpl). Most Puma and BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 136.9 cpl, most 7-Eleven sites to 135.9 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 FuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still 30 sites selling below 120 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 37 cpl, which means you can save up to $22 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 105.9 cpl at Caltex StarMart Midvale and Caltex StarShop Swan View in the East;
  • 101.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 101.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 109.7 cpl at Vibe Toodyay Rd in the East;
  • 102.9 cpl at Coles Express Casuarina in the South; and
  • 102.9 cpl at Coles Express Duncraig 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 19,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 304 054.
