After two weeks of fuel-related cheer, it’s back to an increase in weekly fuel prices, with both petrol and diesel pump prices impacted in this week’s price adjustment.

From tomorrow, March 1, RON 95 petrol will be priced at RM2.20 per litre (up three sen from RM2.17 per litre last week), while RON 97 will go for RM2.47 per litre (up four sen from RM2.43 per litre last week).

The price of diesel has also gone up – Euro 2M will retail for RM2.18 per litre (up five sen from RM2.13 last week). As such, Euro 5 diesel, which commands a 10 sen premium over regular diesel, will be priced at RM2.28 (previously, RM2.23 per litre). These prices will be in effect until March 7, when the next set of fuel price adjustments will be announced.

This week’s fuel price announcement is the 49th since the weekly system took effect at the end of March 2017. The current price of RON 95 petrol is 10 sen lower (from RM2.30 per litre) than at the start of the programme, while RON 97 is 13 sen less (from RM2.60). Diesel, meanwhile, is two sen lower than it was then (from RM2.20 per litre).
