The price of RON 97 petrol seems to have gone up another five sen to RM2.90 per litre. The last price change for the premium fuel happened only a month ago, when the price was upped by five sen to RM2.85 per litre.
The price of RON 95 petrol remains at RM2.10 per litre and diesel at RM2.00 per litre. Unlike RON 95 and diesel, the pricing of RON 97 is minimally subsidised and claimed to be derived by market forces, so price changes happen more often than the other two fuels.
The last time RON 97 was priced at RM2.90 per litre was from March 2013, representing a 20 sen jump.
