Perth motorists advised to top up to save money 5 May

The average price of regular unleaded petrol (ULP) is set to increase by over 30 cents per litre (cpl) to 157 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers, if they can, to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Wednesday 5 May 2021, most branded retailers are hiking their ULP price: Caltex Woolworths, Caltex and Coles Express hiking by 42-44 cpl to 169.9 cpl; BP to 168.9 cpl; Ampol and 7-Eleven to 167.9 cpl; Puma to 167.7 cpl; and Vibe to 159.9 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 45 sites selling below 124 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 49 cpl, which means you can save up to $29 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 121.9 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 120.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 121.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake and United Maddington in the South; and
  • 123.3 cpl at Vibe Morley in the North.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 121.9 cpl at Shell High Wycombe in the East;
  • 120.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 121.9 cpl at 7-Eleven Cockburn Central and United Maddington in the South; and
  • 121.9 cpl at United Tapping in the North.
