Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 7 cents per litre (cpl) to 141.9 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Thursday 4 June 2015, most BP, Caltex Woolworths, and Puma sites are increasing their ULP prices between 20 and 27 cpl to 145.9 cpl. This continues an upward trend started by Caltex and Coles Express, who have increased their ULP prices in the last few days by around 25 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 over 35 sites selling below 130 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 31 cpl, which means you can save up to $18 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 118.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Forrestfield in the East;
  • 118.1 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 117.7 cpl at Coles Express Mount Lawley and Coles Express Scarborough in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 122.5 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 120.6 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 117.7 cpl at Coles Express Mount Lawley and Coles Express Scarborough 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.
