Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerMotor industry

The average price of unleaded petrol (ULP) is set to increase by more than 15 cents per litre (cpl) to 150.4 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up this public holiday Monday to save money.                                                     

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 4 June 2019, most BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 159.9 cpl (hiking by 29 cpl). Most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price to 157.9 cpl, most 7-Eleven and Coles Express sites to 156.9 cpl, and most Caltex Woolworths sites to 156.7 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 50 sites selling below 136 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 34 cpl, which means you can save up to $20 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 127.3 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South;
  • 127.3 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka in the North; and
  • 129.9 cpl at NightOwl Shell Bellevue in the East.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 127.3 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South;
  • 127.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Whitfords in the North; and
  • 135.7 cpl at Better Choice Bellevue in the East.

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 12,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
