The latest fuel price announcement is here, and after several weeks of watching some numbers go up, there is finally some good news (depending on how you look at it). For starters, RON 97 and RON 95 petrol is unchanged, and diesel is now a few sen cheaper from the week before.

From tomorrow, August 24, RON 95 petrol will be priced at RM2.15 per litre (unchanged from last week), while RON 97 petrol is priced at RM2.43 per litre (also unchanged last week).

As for Euro 2M diesel, it now retails at the pump for RM2.01 per litre (down three sen from RM2.04 per litre last week) this week, while Euro 5 diesel will go for RM2.11 per litre (down three sen from RM2.14 per litre last week). These prices take effect from 12.01am until August 30, when the next round of fuel prices will be announced.

This is the 22nd 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 15 sen (from RM2.30 per litre), RON 97 by 17 sen (RM2.60 per litre) and Euro 2M diesel is down by 19 sen (from RM2.20 per litre).
