It’s time once again for another fuel price announcement, with the latest numbers likely to evoke mixed feelings for motorists. The coming sees an increase for petrol prices from last week.

From tomorrow, January 18, the price of RON 95 petrol is up by four sen, retailing at RM2.30 per litre (from RM2.26 per litre last week). Similarly, RON 97 now goes for RM2.57 per litre (also up four sen from RM2.53 per litre last week).

As for diesel, Euro 2M remains at RM2.32 per litre, while Euro 5 diesel will sell for RM2.42 per litre at the pumps. These prices will come into effect from midnight until January 24, when the next fuel price adjustment will be announced.

This week’s fuel price announcement is the 43rd since the weekly system took effect at the end of March 2017. The net difference is unchanged for RON 95 petrol (from RM2.30 per litre), while RON 97 petrol is three sen cheaper (from RM2.60 per litre), and for diesel it is an 12 sen increase (from RM2.20 per litre) since then.
