Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by over 20 cents per litre (cpl) to 147.7 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 12 December 2017, all Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 151.9 cpl (an increase of 22 cpl). Most 7-Eleven, Caltex Woolworths, BP, Puma and Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price to 149.9 cpl, most United sites to 149.7 cpl and most 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 30 sites selling below 137 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 26 cpl, which means you can save up to $15 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 121.9 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 118.6 cpl at Puma Atwell in the South; and
  • 118.6 cpl at Puma First Avenue Mt Lawley in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 126.9 cpl at Vibe Mt Helena in the East;
  • 125.9 cpl at Peak Kwinana in the South; and
  • 127.9 cpl at 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 13,500 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
