FuelWatch – 23 July 2018

Avoid Perth petrol price rise 

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 19 cents per litre (cpl) to 155.5 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 24 July 2018, most Caltex, Puma, BP and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 159.9 cpl (an increase of between 21 cpl and 28 cpl). Most 7-Eleven and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 157.9 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 whyFuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still over 30 sites selling below 138 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:

  • 131.5 cpl at Puma Midvale in the East;

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

  • 129.7 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 133.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;

  • 131.5 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Kwinana, Caltex Woolworths South Fremantle and Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and

  • 131.5 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Ellenbrook and Caltex Woolworths Osborne Park in the North.
