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

On Thursday, 16 August 2012, most Caltex, Caltex Woolworths, Gull and Peak sites are increasing their ULP price by 16 cents per litre (cpl) up to 151.9 cpl. Most BP and Coles Express sites are also hiking their prices tomorrow, by 14 cpl up to 149.9 cpl. Tomorrow's metropolitan ULP average will be 147.5 cpl, however there will be 30 Perth sites selling below 136 cpl.

As a result of recent increases in international prices, local petrol prices are now at their highest level since the end of May.

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 136.8 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 135.9 cpl at 24 sites in the East;
  • 131.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Southern River in the South; and
  • 131.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Joondalup and Caltex Woolworths Morley Galleria Rocks in the North.

Thursday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 135.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 131.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Murdoch, Caltex Woolworths South Lake and Caltex Woolworths Canning Vale in the South; and
  • 131.8 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Greenwood and Caltex Woolworths Whitfords in the North.

Tomorrow’s metropolitan LPG average will be 74.9 cpl, however there will be over 20 sites selling below 70 cpl. Thursday’s cheapest LPG will be available for 66.9 cpl at Caltex Woolworths Mirrabooka and Coles Express Malaga.
