Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average price of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 21 cents per litre (cpl) to 157.1 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 24 September 2019, most Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 169.9 cpl (hiking by 35.2 cpl). Most Caltex and many Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 167.9 cpl, most Puma sites to 167.7 cpl, most BP sites to 163.9 cpl, most 7-Eleven sites to 159.7 cpl and some Vibe Sites to 159.3 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 30 sites selling below 136 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 40 cpl, which means you can save up to $24 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 129.7 cpl at Puma High Wycombe in the East;
  • 129.5 cpl at United Southern River in the South; and
  • 129.7 cpl at Puma First Avenue Mt Lawley in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 129.7 cpl at Puma High Wycombe in the East;
  • 131.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 131.5 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Aveley 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 11,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
