PETROL prices are breaking records again – and for all the wrong reasons.

The average price of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 14 cents per litre (cpl) to 165.5cpl tomorrow, so drivers are encouraged to fill up today to save money.

Get ready for long lines at the following fuel stations because they are selling unleaded petrol the cheapest.

Monday’s cheapest unleaded petrol is available for:

  • 147.3cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 143.5cpl at United South Lake in the South; and
  • 143.7cpl at United Ellenbrook in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 147.9cpl at FastFuel 24/7 (Forrestfield) in the East;
  • 147.7cpl at Better Choice Naval Base in the South; and
  • 148.5cpl at Better Choice Tuart Hill in the North.

More than 77,000 people have signed up on Facebook (click here for more) to take part in a fuel strike later this month.

The event encourages Australians to “rise up against the petroleum industry” and make a stand on October 26.

More than 16,000 people have signed the online petition stating the same.

In the meantime, we should just be happy we don’t live in New Zealand (not just because of their fuel prices).

Drivers can head to the mobile compatible www.fuelwatch.wa.gov.au site to find the cheapest fuel in their area. Log on after 2.30pm each day to compare today’s and tomorrow’s prices. You can also sign up for free emails along with the 12,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
