On Thursday, 22 November 2012, most BP sites are hiking their ULP price by 18 cents per litre (cpl) up to 149.9 cpl. Most Caltex and Caltex Woolworths sites are hiking their ULP price by 16 cpl up to 147.9 cpl. Most Coles Express sites are hiking their price by 15 cpl up to 146.9 cpl.  Most Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their ULP price tomorrow, up to 145.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 144.8 cpl, however there will be over 40 Perth sites selling below 137 cpl.

  • 127.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale and Caltex Woolworths Murdoch in the South; and
