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

On Thursday, 20 December 2012, most Caltex sites are hiking their ULP price by 13 cents per litre (cpl) up to 145.9 cpl. Most Caltex Woolworths, Coles Express, Gull and Peak sites are hiking their ULP price up to 144.9 cpl. Most BP sites are hiking their ULP price up to 143.9 cpl. United sites are also hiking their ULP price tomorrow, up to a maximum of 143.7 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 143.2 cpl, however there will be 60 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 133.8 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  •  129.9 cpl at Peak Glen Forrest and Gull El Caballo Roadhouse in the East;
  •  129.9 cpl at Gull Causeway (Victoria Park) and Gull Atwell in the South; and
  •  129.9 cpl at Gull Yokine in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  •  132.9 cpl at Better Choice Stratton and Better Choice Roleystone in the East;
  •  129.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake and Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  •  129.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Whitfords and Caltex Woolworths Clarkson in the North.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 81.3 cpl, however there will be over 40 Perth sites selling below 78 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 76.9 cpl at five sites.
