Yes, it’s Wednesday again, and that means there’s another fuel price announcement in store for this week. After a temporary respite from two straight weeks of increases, fuel prices are back on their upward trend.

From tomorrow, July 27, RON 95 petrol will be priced at RM2.03 per litre (up six sen from RM1.97 per litre last week), marking the first time the fuel has crested the two ringgit mark since the second week of June. Meanwhile, RON 97 petrol is priced at RM2.28 per litre (also up six sen from RM2.22 per litre).

As for Euro 2M diesel, it will retail at the pump at RM1.99 per litre (up three sen from RM1.96 previously) this week, while Euro 5 diesel will go for RM2.09 per litre (also up three sen from RM2.06). These prices take effect from midnight until August 2, when the next price adjustment will be announced.

This is the 18th 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 27 sen (from RM2.30 per litre), RON 97 by 32 sen (RM2.60 per litre) and diesel is down by 21 sen (RM2.20).
