Slight disruption in regular price cycles for both Adelaide and Perth this week, whilst this is common for Adelaide not so much for Perth. It’s expected that there will be a slight shift back weekly cycles but we could see something different. We’re also likely to see a significant jump in ULP prices this week across most cities with the current average retail price slowly creeping up to the wholesale price.


Current ULP average: 189.2cpl

Price range over the last week: 147.9cpl – 199.9cpl

Most retailers have increased their prices over this last week, with only handful still down in the 140s and 50s.


Current ULP average: 166.3cpl

Whilst most retailers have increased their prices in the last week or so to 193.9cpl for E10, there are still some retailers with prices still in the 140s and 150s.
