Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 18 cents per litre (cpl) to 131.7 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 20 June 2017, most BP and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 135.9 cpl (an increase of 22 cpl by BP and 20 cpl by Coles Express). Most Caltex Woolworths and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price to 134.9 cpl and most 7-Eleven and Caltex sites to 133.9 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 more than 40 sites selling below 120 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 30 cpl, which means you can save up to $18 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 105.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Midvale in the East;
  • 105.7 cpl at Puma Atwell in the South; and
  • 105.7 cpl at Puma Landsdale in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 109.9 cpl at Better Choice Bellevue in the East;
  • 109.9 cpl at Peak Kwinana in the South; and
  • 112.7 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 21,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
