Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 10 cents per litre (cpl) to 128.0 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.                                              

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 5 July 2016, most BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 133.9 cpl, an increase of 15 cpl. The majority of Caltex and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 130.9 cpl and most Coles Express and Puma sites to 129.9 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 FuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still more than 30 sites selling below 117 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 24 cpl, which means you can save up to $14 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 110.9 cpl at BP Maida Vale in the East;
  • 109.5 cpl at 7-Eleven Haynes (Armadale) in the South; and
  • 109.5 cpl at 7-Eleven Wangara in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 113.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 109.5 cpl at 7-Eleven Haynes (Armadale) in the South; and
  • 109.5 cpl at Caltex StarShop Wangara 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, call 1300 30 40 54.
