Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by 14 cents per litre (cpl) to 120.6 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 9 August 2016, most Caltex and BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 125.9 cpl (an increase of 18 cpl by Caltex and 16 cpl by BP). Most Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 124.9 cpl, most Puma sites to 123.9 cpl, most United sites to 122.7 cpl and most Caltex Woolworths 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 over 30 sites selling below 106 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 33 cpl, which means you can save up to $19 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 101.5 cpl at Puma Lesmurdie and Puma Kalamunda in the East;
  • 92.9 cpl at Vibe Armadale in the South; and
  • 93.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood, Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka and Caltex Woolworths Whitfords in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 102.5 cpl at Better Choice Stratton in the East;
  • 92.9 cpl at Vibe Armadale in the South; and
  • 93.2 cpl at Coles Express Duncraig and Coles Express Warwick 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 37,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
