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 139.5 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Thursday 7 May 2015, most BP, Caltex, Caltex Woolworths and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price up to 143.9 cpl - a 17 cpl increase for BP and 16 cpl increase for the others. Most Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 142.9 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 128 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 23 cpl, which means you can save up to $13 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 124.9 cpl at Gull High Wycombe in the East;
  • 120.1 cpl at Coles Express Southern River in the South; and
  • 120.1 cpl at Coles Express Clarkson and Coles Express Jolimont in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 124.5 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 120.1 cpl at Coles Express Southern River, Caltex Woolworths Beckenham, Caltex Woolworths Warnbro Fair and Caltex Woolworths Southern River in the South; and
  • 120.1 cpl at Coles Express Jolimont, Coles Express Clarkson, Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Whitfords 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.
