Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 10 cents per litre (cpl) to 148.5 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 4 September 2018, most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price to 152.9 cpl (an increase of 15 cpl). Most BP sites are increasing their ULP price to 151.9 cpl, and most 7-Eleven, Caltex Woolworths and Puma sites to 149.9 cpl. Additionally, some Better Choice sites are increasing their ULP price to 145.7 cpl, some Vibe sites to 143.7 cpl and all Coles Express sites to 142.9 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 FuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still 25 sites selling below 141 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 27 cpl, which means you can save up to $16 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 132.9 cpl at Puma High Wycombe in the East;
  • 131.6 cpl at Puma Warnbro in the South; and
  • 131.6 cpl at Puma Joondalup in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 138.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 132.3 cpl at United South Lake in the South; and
  • 132.3 cpl at United Ellenbrook 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 12,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
