Perth petrol prices are due to drop under $1 for the first time in a year on Monday.

Two petrol stations in Perth’s southern suburbs – United in Leda and 7-Eleven in Rockingham – will be selling unleaded fuel for 99.9 cents.

The drop in price will mark the first time petrol prices have fallen under $1 since February 7, 2015.

The prices will take effect from 6am, with Perth metropolitan area prices averaging $1.06 a litre.

North of the river’s cheapest fuel will be $1.01 at Puma outlets in Alexander Heights, Joondalup and First Avenue Mt Lawley.

In the hills drivers can also fill up for $1.01 at Puma outlets in Kalamunda, Bellevue, Mundaring, Gingers (Upper Swan), Lesmurdie, Glen Forrest and Sawyers Valley.

In contrast, Perth’s most expensive fuel on Monday will be sold at Wesco in North Perth at $1.29 per litre.
