Ninety-nine cents a litre – it’s a fuel price almost too good to be true. But drivers north and south of Perth’s CBD have been taking advantage of a cheap fuel deal that’s caused traffic chaos.
The cheap fuel deal was the result of a radio promotion from Hit 92.9 that started at Puma Energy petrol stations in Dayton and Baldivas for just 24 hours.
At both locations, cars were lined up from the early hours for hundreds of metres, motorists keen to get their share of the cheap fuel.
From 6am, motorists came in their droves – many going great lengths to fill up.
One driver travelled from Kwinana, more than 20 kilometres away from the Baldivas station. Speaking to 9News, he said the savings would help him out with his weekly budget.

Others coming back for seconds – one driver telling 9News he’d be returning with two more cars later in the day.
You’d have to go back to July 2017 to get fuel as cheap as 99 cents a litre – that was the last time it fell below a dollar in Perth – it’s no wonder drivers have been so eager to fill up.
The offer runs until 5:59am tomorrow at Baldivas and Dayton.
