Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 9 cents per litre (cpl) to 126.2 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.    

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 12 July 2016, most BP, Caltex, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 129.9 cpl (an increase of 12 cpl by BP, Caltex and Puma and 10 cpl by Coles Express). Most Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 127.9 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 recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still more than 30 sites selling below 115 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 27 cpl, which means you can save up to $16 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 109.9 cpl at Puma Gingers (Upper Swan) in the East;
  • 103.3 cpl at Caltex StarMart Forrestdale and Caltex StarShop Seville Grove in the South; and
  • 102.9 cpl at Caltex StarShop Wangara in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 115.0 cpl at Chidlow Growers Mart Liquor Store in the East;
  • 103.3 cpl at Caltex StarMart Forrestdale and Caltex StarShop Seville Grove in the South; and
  • 107.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka, Caltex Woolworths Whitfords and 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, call 1300 30 40 54.
