On Thursday, 5 September 2013, most Caltex sites are hiking their ULP price by 18 cents per litre (cpl) up to 161.9 cpl. Most Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price up to 160.9 cpl, most BP, Coles Express and Gull sites up to 159.9 cpl and most Peak sites up to 158.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 157.5 cpl, however there will be over 35 Perth sites selling below 149 cpl.

  • 142.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 141.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Murdoch and Caltex Woolworths Beckenham in the  South; and
  • 140.7 cpl at United Lexia in the North.
