Avoid Perth petrol price rise
The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by over 19 cents per litre (cpl) to 145.6 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.
FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 21 November 2017, most BP, Caltex, Caltex Woolworths, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 149.9 cpl (increasing between 21 cpl and 25 cpl). Most 7-Eleven sites are increasing their ULP price to 148.9 cpl and some Vibe sites to 143.7 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 35 sites selling below 130 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 30 cpl, which means you can save up to $18 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.
Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:
- 120.6 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
- 119.6 cpl at Puma Parmelia in the South; and
- 119.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Balga and 7-Eleven Malvern Springs (Ellenbrook) in the North.
Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
- 120.7 cpl at Vibe Toodyay Rd (Gidgegannup) in the East;
- 119.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Southern River in the South; and
- 119.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka 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 13,500 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
