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

On Thursday, 19 September 2013, most BP sites are hiking their ULP price by 11 cents per litre (cpl) up to 157.9 cpl. Most Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price up to 156.9 cpl, most Caltex and Caltex Woolworths sites up to 155.9 cpl, most Gull sites up to 154.9 cpl and most Peak sites up to 153.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 154.6 cpl, however there will be over 35 Perth sites selling below 148 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 147.2 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 138.7 cpl at Better Choice Stratton in the East;
  • 142.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths O’Connor in the South; and
  • 142.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Whitfords in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 144.8 cpl at Gull Bellevue in the East;
  • 142.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Murdoch, Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale and Caltex Woolworths South Lake in the South; and
  • 142.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Morley Galleria in the North.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 86.4 cpl, however there will be over 40 Perth sites selling below 82 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 75.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka and Caltex Woolworths Maddington West.
