Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 14 cents per litre (cpl) to 144.9 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 28 July 2015, most Caltex, Puma and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP prices to 149.9 cpl, an increase of between 17 and 34 cpl by Caltex, 18 to 29 cpl by Puma and 18 cpl by Coles Express. Most BP sites are increasing to 147.9 cpl and the majority of Caltex Woolworths sites to 145.9 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 we recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still over 30 sites selling below 130 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:

  • 115.1 cpl at Coles Express Middle Swan in the East;
  • 115.5 cpl at Caltex Truckstop Maddington, Caltex StarMart Baldivis, Caltex StarMart Secret Harbour and Caltex StarMart Thornlie in the South; and
  • 115.1 cpl at Coles Express Mount Lawley and Coles Express Malaga in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 115.1 cpl at Coles Express Middle Swan in the East;
  • 120.9 cpl at Puma Atwell in the South; and
  • 115.1 cpl at Coles Express Mount Lawley and Coles Express Malaga 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.
