Avoid Perth petrol price rise this New Year

This announcement is for: 
Consumer

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 11 cents per litre (cpl) to 124.9 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up before New Year’s Day to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Thursday 1 January 2015, most Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP prices by 18 cpl to 129.9 cpl; the majority of Caltex, Caltex Woolworths and Puma Energy sites to 127.9 cpl; most Gull sites up to 126.9 cpl; and most BP sites up to 122.9 cpl.

Perth’s weekly petrol price cycle results in prices, on average, being cheapest on Tuesday and Wednesday and at their most expensive on Thursday and Friday – that’s why we recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still more than 35 sites selling below 115 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 26 cpl, which means you can save as much as $15 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 110.1 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield in the East;
  • 109.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale and Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 109.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 110.1 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield in the East;
  • 109.7 cpl at United South Lake in the South; and
  • 109.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Morley Galleria 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 550 808.
