Slight changes to the Perth market this week shifting from fortnightly to weekly, this is likely to have happened due to many retailers moving prices against the regular fortnightly pattern. This has been creating slight disruption to the regular trend. Though good news for motorists as it means they will be able to buy fuel at the bottom of the cycle which is every week again. We’re likely to see slightly smaller cycles too!
