The average price of unleaded petrol is set to increase by over 21 cents per litre (cpl) to 136.8 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 5 February 2019, most Coles Express, all 7-Eleven, most Caltex and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 142.9 cpl (increasing by between 28 and 32 cpl). Most BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 141.9 cpl, most Puma sites to 141.7 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 25 sites selling below 120 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 32 cpl, which means you can save up to $19 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 110.9 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield, Coles Express Kalamunda, Coles Express Middle Swan and Coles Express Upper Swan Roadhouse in the East;
  • 110.3 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 110.3 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 117.9 cpl at FastFuel 24/7 (Forrestfield) in the East;
  • 110.7 cpl at United Myaree in the South; and
  • 110.7 cpl at United Ellenbrook 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 12,500 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
