The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 14 cents per litre (cpl) to 136.8 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 14 March 2017, most Puma, Coles Express, Caltex and BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.9 cpl (an increase of 20 cpl, 17 cpl, 16 cpl and 13 cpl respectively). Most Caltex Woolworths and 7-Eleven sites are increasing their ULP price to 137.9 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 126 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 26 cpl, which means you can save up to $15 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 115.6 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 113.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 111.8 cpl at Caltex StarMart Alkimos in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 116.0 cpl at Chidlow Growers Mart Liquor Store in the East;
  • 116.7 cpl at United Hamilton Hill in the South; and
  • 118.7 cpl at United Ellenbrook, United Lexia and United Osborne Park 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 32,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
