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 141.3 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money. 

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 31 October 2017, most Caltex Woolworths, Puma, Caltex and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 144.9 cpl (an increase of between 23 and 29 cpl). Most 7-Eleven and BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 142.9 cpl and most United sites are increasing their ULP price 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 129 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 28 cpl, which means you can save up to $16 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 112.6 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 110.6 cpl at Puma Parmelia in the South; and
  • 110.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Landsdale and 7-Eleven Wangara in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 118.9 cpl at FastFuel 24/7 in the East;
  • 116.9 cpl at Peak Kwinana in the South; and
  • 121.7 cpl at 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 19,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
