It’s Wednesday again, and we’re afraid to be the bearer of bad news, but this week’s fuel price announcement sees yet more increases across the board for the second time in a row.

From tomorrow, July 13, RON 95 petrol will be priced at RM1.97 per litre (up four sen from RM1.93 per litre last week), while RON 97 petrol is priced at RM2.22 per litre (up three sen from RM2.19 per litre).

As for Euro 2M diesel, it will retail at the pump for RM1.96 per litre (up five sen from RM1.91 previously) this week, while Euro 5 diesel will go for RM2.06 per litre (also up five sen, from RM2.01). These prices take effect from midnight until July 19, when the next price adjustment will be announced.

This is the 16th weekly fuel pricing update since the system’s implementation on March 30. Compared to March 2017 prices, which was before weekly pricing took effect, RON 95 is down by 33 sen (from RM2.30 per litre), RON 97 by 38 sen (RM2.60 per litre) and diesel is down by 24 sen (RM2.20).
