Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) is set to increase by over 33 cents per litre (cpl) to 154.2 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers, if they can, to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Wednesday 3 March 2021, most branded retailers are hiking their ULP price: Caltex/Ampol, 7-Eleven, Caltex Woolworths and Coles Express hiking by between 44-45 cpl to 163.9 cpl; Puma to 163.7 cpl; BP to 162.9 cpl; and Vibe to 159.7 cpl.

Perth’s weekly petrol price cycle results in prices, on average, being cheapest on Monday and Tuesday and at their most expensive on Wednesday and Thursday – that’s why FuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still 40 sites selling below 120 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 50 cpl, which means you can save up to $30 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 117.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Midvale in the East;
  • 112.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 117.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Gosnells, 7-Eleven Haynes, 7-Eleven Kelmscott Central, 7-Eleven Success, Caltex Woolworths Maddington West and Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 115.9 cpl at Liberty Banksia Grove in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 119.5 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 114.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 119.3 cpl at Puma Hamilton Hill, Puma Hamilton Hill South and Puma Munster in the South; and
  • 115.9 cpl at Liberty Banksia Grove in the North.
