Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 19 cents per litre (cpl) to 120.5 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 12 April 2016, most BP sites are increasing their ULP price by 22 cpl to 123.9 cpl. Most Caltex, Caltex Woolworths, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 121.9 cpl and most United sites are increasing their ULP price to 121.7 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 40 sites selling below 116 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 22 cpl, which means you can save up to $13 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 97.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Forrestfield in the East;
  • 95.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake and Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 95.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 105.9 cpl at Better Choice Roleystone in the East;
  • 101.9 cpl at BP Connect Phoenix in the South; and
  • 101.9 cpl at BP Connect Main Street (Osborne Park), BP Connect Padbury and BP Connect North Perth 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.
