KUALA LUMPUR: The price of RON97 petrol goes up by 15 sen per litre today, bringing its price to RM2.85 per litre.
The official announcement is expected to be made later today.
However, Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia president Datuk Hashim Othman disclosed the price rise to The Star late yesterday.
He declined to comment further until the official decision is announced.
When asked about the matter, Domestic Trade, Co-Operatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Hassan Malek said: “Seems you know more about it than me. I can’t confirm or deny. Just wait for the announcement.”
The price of RON97 peaked at RM3 per litre in September last year.
