Perth petrol costs: Diesel to break record for fifth day running as e-bike sales boom

The price of diesel in Perth will reach a new record high for the fifth day in a row on Sunday, averaging a staggering 217.2c a litre across the city.

As the price of unleaded begins to creep downwards after also hitting record highs this week, the cost of filling up with diesel continues to soar.

At Coles Express in Canning Vale tomorrow, diesel will reach the eye-watering price of 231.9 c per litre — almost a dollar higher than the average price for a litre of diesel in March last year.

The average price of unleaded petrol topped $2.12 per litre this week, with diesel not far behind at $2.06, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine sent global oil markets into a frenzy.

Brent crude reached a near record high US$130 per barrel earlier this week before moderating to $US110 – although that still remains well above the past decade average of around US$83.
