On Thursday, 8 November 2012, most Caltex and Coles Express sites are hiking their ULP price tomorrow by 12 cents per litre (cpl) up to 145.9 cpl. Most BP and Caltex Woolworths sites are hiking their ULP price by 11 cpl up to 144.9 cpl. Most Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their price tomorrow, up to 142.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 143.3 cpl, however there will be 40 Perth sites selling below 137 cpl.
