Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by 15 cents per litre (cpl) to 135.2 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 20 October 2015, most BP, Caltex and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.9 cpl (a hike of 20 cpl by most BP and Caltex sites and a hike of 21 cpl by most Puma sites). The majority of Coles Express sites are hiking their ULP price to 138.9 cpl and most Caltex Woolworths sites to 132.9 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 30 sites selling below 122 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 30 cpl, which means you can save up to $18 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 110.7 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 110.7 cpl at Puma Maddington in the South; and
  • 110.7 cpl at Puma Guildford in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 116.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 109.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 109.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood 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 37,500 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
