On Thursday, 30 August 2012, most Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price by 13 cents per litre (cpl) up to 153.9 cpl. Most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price by 12 cpl up to 152.9 cpl. Most BP, Caltex Woolworths, Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their prices tomorrow, up to 151.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan ULP average will be 149.8 cpl, however there will be over 40 Perth sites selling below 142 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 141.4 cpl.

  • 137.9 cpl at Gull El Caballo Roadhouse in the East
  • 135.9 cpl at Peak Armadale and Gull Rockingham in the South
  • 135.9 cpl at Gull North Perth in the North


Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:
