Fuel price advice for Perth drivers - 3 April 2013

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

On Thursday, 4 April 2013, most BP sites are hiking their ULP price tomorrow by 13 cents per litre (cpl) up to 150.9 cpl. Most Coles Express, Caltex and Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price by 12 cpl up to 149.9 cpl and most Gull and Peak sites up to 148.9 cpl.

Tomorrow's metropolitan average price for ULP will be 147.5 cpl, however there will be over 45 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 140.0 cpl.

Wednesday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 132.9 cpl at Peak Glen Forrest and Peak Sawyers Valley in the East;
  • 132.9 cpl at Peak Forrestdale in the South; and
