Fuel prices Oct 14-20: RON97 up 10 sen to RM2.87 per litre, RON95, diesel remain unchanged

KUALA LUMPUR: The retail prices of RON95 petrol and diesel will remain unchanged at RM2.05 and RM2.15 per litre respectively until Oct 13, says the Finance Ministry on Wednesday (Oct 13).

In a statement, however, the retail price of RON97 petrol will increase by 10 sen per litre to RM2.87 from Thursday (Oct 14) until Oct 20.

The Finance Ministry said the prices were set based on the weekly retail prices of petroleum products using the Automatic Pricing Mechanism (APM).

"To protect consumers from the effects of actual increase in oil prices on the global market, the government has maintained the retail price of RON95 at the ceiling price of RM2.05 per litre and diesel at RM2.15 per litre, although the actual market prices for both products have exceeded the set ceiling prices,” it said.

The Ministry also said the government would continue to monitor the trends of global crude crude oil prices and take appropriate measures to ensure the continued welfare and well-being of the people.
