Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 22 cents per litre (cpl) to 138.6 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 19 September 2017, most Puma, Caltex Woolworths, 7-Eleven and Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price to 142.9 cpl (an increase of between 27 and 29 cpl). Most Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 141.9 cpl, most BP sites to 139.9 cpl and most United sites to 139.7 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 123 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 34 cpl, which means you can save up to $20 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 110.8 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield in the East;
  • 107.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 107.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 108.8 cpl at 7-Eleven Wattle Grove in the East;
  • 108.8 cpl at Coles Express Southern River in the South; and
  • 108.8 cpl at Coles Express Mount Lawley and Coles Express Warwick 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 15,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
