Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for:

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 6 cents per litre (cpl) to 138.3 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Thursday 28 May 2015, most BP, Caltex Woolworths, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP prices by 13 cpl to 145.9 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 35 sites selling below 127 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 28 cpl, which means you can save up to $16 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 128.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 120.8 cpl at Caltex StarMart Canning Vale, Caltex StarMart Thornlie, Caltex StarShop Bannister Road, Caltex StarShop Livingston, Caltex Truckstop Maddington, Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale and Caltex Woolworths Warnbro Fair in the South; and
  • 120.7 cpl at United Mt Lawley in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 128.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 120.8 cpl at Caltex StarMart Canning Vale, Caltex StarMart Thornlie, Caltex StarMart Warnbro, Caltex StarShop Bannister Road, Caltex StarShop Livingston and Caltex Truckstop Maddington in the South; and
  • 120.7 cpl at United Mt Lawley 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.
