Fuelwatch – 13 August 2018

Avoid Perth petrol price rise

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 17 cents per litre (cpl) to 153.1 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 14 August 2018, most BP, Puma and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 159.9 cpl (an increase of between 20 cpl and 26 cpl). Most 7-Eleven sites are increasing their ULP price to 158.9 cpl and most Caltex Woolworths and Caltex sites to 149.9 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 over 30 sites selling below 139 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:

  • 129.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Wattle Grove, Caltex Woolworths Forrestfield and Puma High Wycombe in the East;

  • 126.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and

  • 126.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 134.9 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;

  • 129.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and

  • 129.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Ellenbrook in the North.
