Tomorrow’s average price for unleaded petrol in the Perth metro area is 169.4 cents per litre, the highest on record.

That figure breaks the previous record of 169 cents per litre, which was set on August 4 this year.

Tomorrow’s hike sees the average price of unleaded soar by 30 cents per litre, and FuelWatch is encouraging motorists to fill up today to avoid being stung at the bowser.

On Wednesday, most branded retailers are increasing their unleaded price.

BP, Caltex Woolworths and Coles Express are hiking by between 39-41 cents per litre, up to 178.9.

Puma rises to 178.7, Caltex/Ampol to 177.9, 7-Eleven to 176.9, Vibe to 176.5 and United up to 167.9.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, FuelWatch says there are still over 25 sites selling below 140 cents per litre.

The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 46 cents, meaning you could save up to $27 on a 60-litre tank of fuel.

  • 135.3 cpl at Vibe Upper Swan IGA Xpress in the East;
  • 132.7 cpl at Costco Perth Airport (membership required) and 134.6 cpl at Atlas Fuel Kwinana in the South; and
