It’s Friday, which means it’s time again for the weekly fuel price update. After a week of respite, the price of RON 97 petrol continues to climb once more.

As of tomorrow, April 13, RON 97 will be priced at RM2.68 per litre (up five sen from its RM2.63 last week). There’s no change in the price of RON 95 petrol, which continues to be pegged at RM2.08 per litre, the maximum price consumers pay no matter whether high market prices push pump prices beyond that.

Euro 2M diesel continues to be priced at RM2.18 per litre, while Euro 5 diesel – which is always 10 sen more – is at RM2.28 per litre. The government says that without the price cap in place, RON 95 petrol would cost RM2.38 per litre, while diesel would be at RM2.39 per litre if both were priced according to Automatic Price Mechanism (APM) calculations.

These prices will remain in effect until April 19, when the next set of fuel pricing adjustments will be announced. This is the 15th edition of the weekly fuel pricing format, which is announced every Friday, and takes effect from Saturday until the following Friday.
