On Thursday, 23 August 2012, most Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price by 16 cents per litre (cpl) up to 153.9 cpl. The majority of BP, Caltex and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price by 15 cents up to 152.9 cpl. Most Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their prices tomorrow, up to 151.9 cpl. 

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 149.8 cpl, however there will be more than 50 Perth sites selling below 143 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 139.2 cpl.


Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  •          134.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Midvale in the East;
  •          133.9 cpl at Caltex StarMart Willetton in the South; and
  •          134.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.


Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  •          137.9 cpl at Gull El Caballo Roadhouse in the East;
  •          134.1 cpl at Coles Express Fremantle and Coles Express Brookdale in the South; and
  •          134.1 cpl at Coles Express Clarkson in the North.


Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 73.7 cpl, however there will be more than 40 sites selling below 70 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 66.9 cpl at Coles Express Malaga and Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka.
