It’s the final Wednesday before Chinese New Year, and there’s good news for those who will be criss-crossing Malaysia back to hometowns near and far – after the increases in previous weeks, petrol and diesel prices are down, and by some margin too.

From tomorrow, February 15, the price of RON 95 petrol will be RM2.23 per litre (down 10 sen from RM2.33 per litre last week), while RON 97 will go down 11 sen to RM2.50 per litre for the coming week (RM2.61 per litre last week).

As for diesel, Euro 2M will be priced at RM2.19 (down 12 sen from RM2.31 per litre last week), while Euro 5 diesel will go for RM2.29 (previously, RM2.41 per litre). These prices will be in effect until February 21, when the next fuel price adjustment will be announced.

This week’s fuel price announcement is the 47th since the weekly system took effect at the end of March 2017. The current price of RON 95 petrol is seven sen lower (from RM2.30 per litre) than at the start of the programme, while RON 97 is down ten sen (from RM2.60). Diesel, meanwhile, is one sen lower than it was then (from RM2.20 per litre).
