FuelWatch Alert - Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Consumer

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 6 cents per litre (cpl) to 118.8 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Thursday 15 January 2015, most BP sites are increasing their ULP prices by 10 cpl to 121.9 cpl; the majority of Caltex sites to 120.9; most Coles Express and Puma Energy sites to 119.9; and the majority of Caltex sites to 118.9 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 over 35 sites selling below 112 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.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 106.7 cpl at Puma Energy Kalamunda in the East;
  • 106.7 cpl at Puma Energy Munster and Gull Spearwood in the South; and
  • 107.1 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Morley Galleria in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 106.1 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield in the East;
  • 106.1 cpl at Coles Express Waikiki and Coles Express Karawara in the South; and
  • 107.1 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Joondalup Winton Rd and Caltex Woolworths Whitfords 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.
