All announcements issued prior to 1 July 2017 were issued by the former Department of Commerce. Announcements listed here are the latest versions available, but may be subject to review. For more information on this announcement, please contact online@dmirs.wa.gov.au.

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

On Thursday, 5 July 2012, most BP, Caltex Woolworths and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price by 13 cents per litre (cpl) to 136.9 cpl. Most Caltex sites are increasing their ULP price by 11 cpl, also to 136.9 cpl. Many Gull and Peak sites are raising their prices up to 134.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan ULP average will be 134 cpl, however there will be over 40 Perth sites selling below 126 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 125.4 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

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

Thursday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 121.9 cpl at Gull Bellevue in the East;
  • 119.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Beckenham and Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 119.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Whitfords in the North.

The international price for LPG continues to fall and is now at its lowest level for 3 years.  As a result, retail LPG prices are expected to continue their downward trend.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan LPG average will be 66.1 cpl, however there will be more than 20 sites selling below 60 cpl.

FuelWatch advises drivers to ALWAYS check the price of petrol and LPG before they buy.
