On Thursday, 18 October 2012, most Coles Express sites are hiking their ULP price to 155.9 cents per litre (cpl). Most Caltex and Caltex Woolworths sites are hiking their ULP price by 15 cpl up to 154.9 cpl. Most BP sites are hiking their ULP price by 14 cpl up to 153.9 cpl. Most Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their price tomorrow, up to 151.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 151.1 cpl, however there will be 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 141.2 cpl.

Wednesday's cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 137.9 cpl at Peak Glen Forrest in the East;
  • 136.9 cpl at Caltex StarMart Willetton in the South; and
  • 137.1 cpl at Coles Express Clarkson and Coles Express Mount Lawley in the North.

Thursday's cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 137.1 cpl at Coles Express Mount Lawley, Caltex Woolworths Clarkson and Coles Express Clarkson in the North.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for LPG will be 86.8 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).
