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

On Thursday, 13 December 2012, most BP sites are hiking their ULP price by 13 cents per litre (cpl) up to 147.9 cpl. Most Caltex, Caltex Woolworths and Coles Express sites are hiking their ULP price by 11 cpl up to 145.9 cpl. Most Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their ULP price tomorrow, up to 144.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 144.1 cpl, however there will be over 50 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 135.7 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 133.4 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 132.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Warnbro Fair and Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 132.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Clarkson in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 133.4 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 132.1 cpl at Coles Express Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 132.1 cpl at Coles Express Mt Lawley and Coles Express Clarkson in the North.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 81.6 cpl. However, there will be over 30 sites selling for less than 79.0 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 77.4 cpl at BP Connect East Perth, Coles Express Perth and Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka.
