On Thursday, 17 January 2013, most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price tomorrow by 12 cents per litre (cpl) up to 148.9 cpl. Most Coles Express sites are raising their ULP price by 11 cpl up to 147.9 cpl, most Caltex Woolworths sites by 10 cpl up to 146.9 cpl, most BP sites by 9 cpl up to 145.9 cpl and most Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their price tomorrow, up to 144.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 144.8 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 137.0 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  •  132.9 cpl at Peak Glen Forrest and Gull Mundaring in the East;
  •  131.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Southern River in the South; and
  •  131.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Clarkson and Caltex Woolworths Whitfords in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  •  133.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  •  131.1 cpl at Coles Express Bentley and Coles Express Fremantle in the South; and
  •  131.1 cpl at Coles Express Clarkson in the North.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 78.6 cpl, however there will be over 50 Perth sites selling below 76 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 74.2 cpl at BP Connect Main Street (Osborne Park), BP Connect Wellington Rd (Morley), BP Connect North Perth and BP 2go Noranda.
