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

On Thursday, 6 December 2012, most Coles Express sites are hiking their ULP price by 12 cents per litre (cpl) up to 148.9 cpl. Most Caltex, Caltex Woolworths, Gull and Peak sites are increasing their ULP price up to 147.9 cpl. The majority of BP sites are also hiking their ULP price tomorrow; up to 146.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 145.6 cpl, however there will be more than 40 Perth sites selling below 139 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 137.3 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 133.9 cpl at Gull El Caballo Roadhouse in the East;
  • 133.1 cpl at Coles Express Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 133.1 cpl at Coles Express Clarkson and Coles Express Mount Lawley in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:  

  •  134.4 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  •  133.1 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale and Coles Express Canning Vale in the South; and
  •  133.1 cpl at Coles Express Mount Lawley, Coles Express Clarkson and Caltex Woolworths Clarkson in the North.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 83.2 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 78.9 cpl at Coles Express Canning Vale, Caltex Woolworths Southern River and Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale.
