Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 22 cents per litre (cpl) to 139.3 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 3 October 2017, most Caltex Woolworths, 7-Eleven, Caltex, Puma, BP and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 142.9 cpl (an increase of between 26 and 28 cpl). Most United sites are increasing their ULP price to 141.7 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 over 30 sites selling below 125 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 32 cpl, which means you can save up to $19 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 108.8 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield in the East;
  • 108.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale and Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South;
  • 108.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 118.9 cpl at FastFuel 24/7 in the East;
  • 110.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Bibra Lake, 7-Eleven Canning Vale, 7-Eleven Forrestdale and 7-Eleven Southern River in the South; and
  • 118.5 cpl at Puma Neerabup and United Neerabup (Food & Fuel) 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 30 40 54.
