Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 11 cents per litre (cpl) to 135.9 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.                                                                                             

FuelWatch advises that on Thursday 23 April 2015, most Caltex, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP prices by 16 cpl to 139.9 cpl; majority of Caltex Woolworths sites to 138.9 cpl and most BP sites to 137.9 cpl.

Perth’s weekly petrol price cycle results in prices, on average, being cheapest on Tuesday and Wednesday and at their most expensive on Thursday and Friday – that’s why we recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still 40 sites selling below 124 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 21 cpl, which means you can save up to $12 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 121.5 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 118.1 cpl at Puma Lynwood, Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale, Caltex Woolworths Warnbro Fair, Coles Express Southern River and Coles Express Waikiki in the South; and
  • 118.1 cpl at Gull Landsdale, Puma Joondalup, Puma Wanneroo, Coles Express Jolimont and Caltex Woolworths Whitfords in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 121.5 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 118.1 cpl at Puma Lynwood, Puma Warnbro, Puma Atwell, Caltex Woolworths South Lake, Caltex Woolworths Southern River, Coles Express Southern River and Coles Express Waikiki in the South; and
  • 118.1 cpl at Gull Landsdale, Coles Express Jolimont and Caltex Woolworths Greenwood 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 37,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
