Yes, Wednesday has come along once again, so it’s time for another round of weekly fuel price updates. There’s a long weekend coming, but citizens won’t be cheering the fact that fuels will be slightly more expensive across the board.

Come August 31, RON 95 petrol will be priced at RM2.16 per litre (one sen up from RM2.15 last week), while RON 97 petrol is priced at RM2.44 per litre (also one sen up from RM2.43 last week).

As for Euro 2M diesel, it now retails at the pump for RM2.04 per litre (regaining the three sen it lost last week, when it was priced at RM2.01 per litre) this week, while Euro 5 diesel will go for RM2.14 per litre (also up three sen from RM2.11 per litre last week). These prices take effect from midnight until September 6, when the next round of fuel prices will be announced.

This is the 23rd 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 14 sen (from RM2.30 per litre), RON 97 by 16 sen (RM2.60 per litre) and Euro 2M diesel by 16 sen (from RM2.20 per litre).
