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

On Thursday, 10 January 2013, most Caltex sites are raising their ULP price tomorrow by 14 cents per litre (cpl) up to 149.9 cpl. Most BP, Caltex Woolworths and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price by 13 cpl up to 148.9 cpl. Most Gull and Peak sites are also hiking their price tomorrow, up to 145.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 145.9 cpl, however there will be over 50 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 136.4 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 131.9 cpl at Gull El Caballo Roadhouse in the East;
  • 130.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths South Lake and Gull Atwell in the South; and
  • 131.9 cpl at Peak Gnangara in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 135.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;

  • 132.4 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Clarkson, Caltex Woolworths Whitfords and Caltex Woolworths Greenwood in the North.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan average price for LPG will be 79.5 cpl, however there will be over 70 Perth sites selling below 77 cpl.
