Fuel price advice for Perth drivers - 6 February 2013

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

On Thursday, 7 February 2013, BP sites are hiking their ULP price tomorrow by 18 cents per litre (cpl) up to 154.9 cpl. Most Caltex and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price by 17 cpl up to 153.9 cpl, most Coles Express sites by 16 cpl up to 152.9 cpl and most Gull and Peak sites by up to 151.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 150.0 cpl, however there will be over 40 Perth sites selling below 140 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 137.7 cpl.

  • 132.9 cpl at Peak Glen Forrest, Peak Sawyers Valley and Gull High Wycombe in the East;
  • 132.1 cpl at Coles Express Fremantle in the South; and
