Perth, Mandurah fuel price to soar to average of 178.9 cents per litre from Wednesday
A wave of petrol pain will roll over Perth motorists Wednesday morning, with the price of regular unleaded soaring 29 cents per litre (cpl).
From 6am, Perth and Mandurah drivers will will be asked to pay 178.9 cpl on average.
In a minor shining light, that price point falls short of the record-equalling high the city hit just two weeks ago when the average for a litre of fuel was 182.4c.
At the expensive end of Wednesday’s price hike, Coles Express will increase the cost of fuel by up to 45 cpl to 193.9 cpl.
For the savvy shopper, 48 sites across Perth will offer fuel below 150 cpl.
“Buying fuel from the cheapest site rather than the most expensive, a difference of 49 cpl, means motorists can potentially save $29 on a 60 litre tank,” Consumer Protection spokesman Alan Hynd said.
Perth’s fuel cycle now bottoms out every two weeks, having previously operated on a seven-day cycle.
