Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 21 cents per litre (cpl) to 140.2 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 24 October 2017, most Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price by 29 cpl to 144.9 cpl. Most 7-Eleven, BP, Caltex, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 142.9 cpl and most United sites to 142.7 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 128 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:

  • 111.8 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 110.8 cpl at Puma Warnbro in the South; and
  • 110.8 cpl at Puma First Avenue Mt Lawley in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 118.9 cpl at FastFuel 24/7 (Forrestfield) in the East;
  • 117.5 cpl at Vibe Hamilton Hill and Vibe Spearwood in the South; and
  • 119.9 cpl at Better Choice Malaga and Better Choice Tuart Hill 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 14,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
