Drivers advised to fill up before petrol prices rise in Perth 14 September

The average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) is set to increase by over 22 cents per litre (cpl) to 164.1 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers, if they can, to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Wednesday 15 September 2021, most branded retailers are hiking their ULP price: BP and Coles Express hiking by between 36-40 cpl up to 178.9 cpl; 7-Eleven and Caltex Woolworths up to 176.9 cpl; Puma up to 176.7 cpl; Vibe up to 174.5 cpl; and United up to 165.9 cpl.

Perth’s weekly petrol price cycle results in prices, on average, being cheapest on Monday and Tuesday and at their most expensive on Wednesday and Thursday – that’s why FuelWatch recommends filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still over 25 sites selling below 138 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 46 cpl, which means you can save up to $27 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 134.9 cpl at Vibe Upper Swan IGA Xpress in the East;
  • 132.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 133.7 cpl at United South Lake and United Southern River in the South; and
  • 133.7 cpl at United Bassendean in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 134.9 cpl at Vibe Upper Swan IGA Xpress in the East;
  • 132.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 134.9 cpl at United South Lake, United Southern River, Caltex Woolworths South Lake and Caltex StarShop South Lake in the South; and
  • 134.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Morley Galleria and United Bassendean in the North.
