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

On Thursday, 17 October 2013, most Caltex and Coles Express sites are hiking their ULP price by 13 cents per litre (cpl) up to 153.9 cpl. Most BP and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price up to 152.9 cpl, most Gull sites up to 151.9 cpl and most Peak sites up to 150.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 150.8 cpl, however there will be over 40 Perth sites selling below 144 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 141.4 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  •  136.1 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield in the East;
  •  136.1 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Port Kennedy and Coles Express Casuarina in the South; and
  •  136.1 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Coles Express Clarkson in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  •  136.1 cpl at Coles Express Forrestfield in the East;
  •  135.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  •  135.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 82.7 cpl, however there will be over 95 Perth sites selling below 80 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 75.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka and Coles Express Malaga.
