Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 18 cents per litre (cpl) to 119.8 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 26 April 2016, most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price to 125.9 cpl (a hike of 26 to 31 cpl). Most BP and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 122.9 cpl, and most Coles Express and Puma sites to 121.9 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 106 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 29 cpl, which means you can save up to $17 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 96.9 cpl at Caltex StarShop Swan View and Caltex StarMart Midvale in the East;
  • 94.7 cpl at Caltex Truckstop Maddington in the South; and
  • 94.7 cpl at Caltex StarMart Northlands and Caltex StarShop Balga in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 96.9 cpl at Caltex StarShop Swan View and Caltex StarMart Midvale in the East;
  • 97.9 cpl at Caltex StarMart Murdoch in the South; and
  • 100.9 cpl at BP Connect Main Street (Osborne Park) 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.
