News | Petrol, diesel prices unchanged
PETALING JAYA: Fuel prices across the board will remain unchanged, the finance ministry announced today.
RON95 and RON97 will retail at RM2.05 and RM2.74 per litre respectively. The price of diesel, too, remains at RM2.15 a litre.
These prices will be effective from Aug 12 until Aug 18.
The finance ministry said the government would 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.
“To protect the 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 market price (derived from the Automatic Pricing Mechanism) for RON95 and diesel has increased beyond the current ceiling price,” it said in a statement. – FMT
