The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by 17 cents per litre (cpl) to 136 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 2 May 2017, most 7-Eleven, Caltex and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.9 cpl (increasing between 20 and 24 cpl). Most Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 138.9 cpl, and most Caltex Woolworths and BP sites 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 124 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 24 cpl, which means you can save up to $14 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 113.4 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 113.4 cpl at Puma Parmelia in the South; and
  • 113.4 cpl at Puma Joondalup in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 117.7 cpl at United Roleystone and Vibe Toodyay Rd (Gidgegannup) in the East;
  • 115.9 cpl at Peak Kwinana in the South; and
  • 116.7 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 28,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
