It’s Friday again, so it’s time for another weekly price announcement for RON 97 petrol. For the coming week (November 30 to December 6), the fuel sees no change in price, remaining at RM2.66 per litre as per last week.

No change of course to RON 95 petrol, which continues to stay at its fixed price ceiling of RM2.08 per litre. It’s the same for diesel – the price of Euro 2M diesel remains at RM2.18 per litre, and Euro 5 diesel, which costs 10 sen more, stays fixed at RM2.28 per litre.

According to the finance ministry, Automatic Price Mechanism (APM) calculations show that RON 95 and diesel fuels would be priced at RM2.36 and RM2.29 per litre respectively if there were no price cap in place. It added that for the period of November 29 until December 6, the government will absorb a total of RM115.70 million to subsidise these fuels.

These prices will remain effective until the next fuel price adjustment is announced on November December 6. This is the 47th edition of the weekly fuel pricing format which is announced every Friday and runs from Saturday until the following Friday. This pricing and subsidy system will come to and end when the government begins its targeted petrol subsidy programme (PSP) for RON 95 petrol early next year.
