FuelWatch – 2 April 2018

Avoid Perth petrol price rise

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 19 cents per litre (cpl) to 147 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 3 April 2018, most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price to 153.9 cpl (an increase of 31 cpl). Most Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 151.9 cpl, and most 7-Eleven, BP, Coles Express and Puma sites are increasing their ULP price 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 35 sites selling below 130 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 28 cpl, which means you can save up to $16 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 121.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Midvale, 7-Eleven Middle Swan and 7-Eleven Wattle Grove in the East;

  • 121.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Bibra Lake and 7-Eleven Canning Vale in the South; and

  • 121.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Butler, 7-Eleven Malvern Springs (Ellenbrook) and 7-Eleven Wangara in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 125.9 cpl at Shell Gidgegannup in the East;

  • 125.9 cpl at Shell Maddington, Puma Hamilton Hill, Puma Phoenix and Puma Munster in the South; and

  • 126.7 cpl at United Ellenbrook and United Osborne Park in the North.
