Only two weeks after Perth drivers were hit with the highest fuel prices ever seen, the record will again be broken tomorrow.

From 6am the average price of unleaded petrol in the Perth metropolitan area will be a painful 182.4 cents per litre, breaking the record of 178.1c set on October 20.

The most expensive unleaded petrol will be sold at Better Choice Stratton for 196.9 cents. This is also breaks a record set last week on October 27 when Karnup Roadhouse was offering fuel for 194.9c.

Coles Express is boosting prices by up to 36c to 193.9c while fuel at Caltex Woolworths, BP and Caltex/Ampol is expected to be up to 189.9c. Puma will be 189.7c, 7-Eleven 187.9c and Vibe 187.7c.

After tomorrow’s price hike, Perth motorists will have to wait for two weeks before petrol prices are again at the bottom of the price cycle.

In a statement FuelWatch said “despite the average hike tomorrow, there are still 28 individual sites offering prices below 156¢/litre”.

Consumers should check the FuelWatch website to find the cheapest prices.

It could mean the difference of $27 on a 60L tank.

Tomorrow’s cheapest petrol includes 155.5c at Shell High Wycombe and Vibe Forrestfield, 150.7c at Costco’s petrol station near Perth Airport and 155.5c at Liberty Banksia Grove and Liberty Landsdale.

The metro area’s new fuel cycle means “cheap Tuesdays” are now only once every fortnight, making it hard for motorists who fill up every week.

“For those who fill up fortnightly, it may be possible to time those visits to the petrol station to coincide with the bottom of the price cycle every second Tuesday, but that task is more difficult for those who need to fill up more regularly,” FuelWatch manager Ben Derecki said in October.
