Public holiday or not, it’s a Wednesday and that means new fuel prices for the week ahead. After last week’s one sen drop, we will see a two sen increase in petrol and three sen increase in diesel prices from midnight.

From tomorrow, February 1, the price of RON 95 petrol will be RM2.31 per litre (from RM2.29 per litre last week). Similarly, the two sen jump in RON 97 pricing means that the fuel will be RM2.58 per litre for the coming week (RM2.56 per litre last week).

As for diesel, Euro 2M will be priced at RM2.34 (from RM2.31 per litre last week), while Euro 5 diesel will go for RM2.44 (previously, RM2.41 per litre). These prices will be in effect until February 7, when the next fuel price adjustment will be announced.

This week’s fuel price announcement is the 45th since the weekly system took effect at the end of March 2017. The current price of RON 95 petrol is one sen higher (from RM2.30 per litre) than at the start of the programme, while RON 97 is two sen less per litre (from RM2.60). Diesel, meanwhile, is 14 sen higher than it was then (from RM2.20 per litre).
