By now some of you would have received rumours of a fuel price hike for February 2017. The news has gone viral on social media, suggesting that the price of RON 95 will go up by 15 sen to RM2.25 per litre tonight. The Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia (PDAM) has denied this rumour entirely, and has advised motorists to wait for the actual prices that are to be announced later today.

This does not mean that there will not be a price hike, however, just that the figures being shared are inaccurate. “The real price will be announced after 8pm tonight and yes it could go up, but it’s ultimately up to the government,” head of PDAM Datuk Khairul Annuar Abdul Aziz told NST Online.

Stay tuned to tonight for confirmed fuel prices for the month of February 2017.

UPDATE: The official prices are in, and no RON 95 will not go up by 15 sen, it’s up by 20 sen instead! Full details here.
