Motorists are being urged to fill up before petrol prices skyrocket to an historic 199.9 cents per litre on Wednesday.

The RAC estimates the increase could see motorists slugged an extra $670 on fuel each year.

FuelWatch has warned the average hike of regular unleaded petrol in Perth would increase by 25 cpl to 190.3cpl tomorrow.

Caltex Woolworths, Caltex/Ampol and Coles Express will raise prices between 34 cpl and 38 cpl to 199.9 cpl.

Vibe’s prices will reach 199.7 cpl, Puma is listed at 196.7 cpl and 7-Eleven will charge 193.9 cpl.

Despite the price jump, there will still be 31 service stations offering prices below 163 cpl.

Savvy motorists can potentially save up to $24 on a 60 litre tank if they shop around.

The cheapest fuel on Wednesday can be found at Costco Perth Airport and United Neerabup.

RAC Manager Vehicles and Fuels Alex Forrest describe the jump as “huge blow” for motorists.

“Western Australians have already been grappling with sky-rocketing petrol prices for months, with fuel now taking up an even bigger slice of the household budget,” Mr Forrest said.

“Seeing prices reach $2 a litre at the bowser is alarming. If it becomes the norm, the average Perth motorist will be forking out an extra $670 a year just to get around our city, or even more for drivers travelling long distances.”
