Fill up today if you want to pay less for your petrol – that’s the advice from FuelWatch.

On Thursday, 11 October 2012, most Caltex sites are hiking their ULP price by 15 cents per litre (cpl) up to 154.9 cpl. Most BP and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price by 13 cpl up to 152.9 cpl. Most Coles Express, Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their price tomorrow, up to 151.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 149.8 cpl, however there will be more than 40 Perth sites selling below 140 cpl.

Given that Perth ULP prices follow a weekly cycle, with Thursday and Friday being the most expensive days, FuelWatch recommends filling up today and paying no more than 140.4 cpl.

  • Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:
    . 137.9 cpl at Better Choice Roleystone in the East;
    . 135.1 cpl at Coles Express Bull Creek and Coles Express Willetton in the South; and
    . 135.1 cpl at Coles Express Warwick in the North.
  • Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
    . 137.4 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
    . 134.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
    . 134.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.
     
    Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 87.3 cpl, however there will be more than 20 sites selling below 81 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 75 cpl at Midway Taxi Management (Mount Hawthorn).
