RON97 Up 2 Sen Per Litre, RON95 And Diesel Unchanged

KUALA LUMPUR: The retail price of RON97 petrol will increase by 2 sen per litre from RM2.65  per litre to RM2.67 per litre while the prices of RON95 petrol and diesel remain unchanged at RM2.05 and RM2.15 per litre respectively from tomorrow  until June 23.

The Ministry of Finance in a statement today said the prices were fixed based on the weekly retail pricing of petroleum products using the Automatic Pricing Mechanism (APM) formula.

“To protect consumers from global oil price increases, the government will maintain the ceiling price of RON95 at RM2.05 per litre and diesel at RM2.15 per litre, even though the  APM market prices for RON95 and diesel have increased beyond the current ceiling prices.

“The government will continue to monitor the trends of global crude oil prices and take appropriate measures to ensure the continued welfare and well-being of the people,” it said.
