It’s Wednesday, and with it comes another round of fuel price adjustment. After a big drop over the CNY period, prices went up last week. Just minimal changes for the coming week.

From tomorrow, March 8, RON 95 petrol will be priced at RM2.21 per litre (up one sen from RM2.20 per litre last week), while RON 97 will go for RM2.47 per litre (unchanged from last week).

For diesel, Euro 2M will retail for RM2.17 per litre (down one sen from RM2.18 last week). As such, Euro 5 diesel, which commands a 10 sen premium over regular diesel, will be priced at RM2.27 (previously, RM2.28 per litre). These prices will be in effect until March 14, when the next set of fuel price adjustments will be announced.

This week’s fuel price announcement is the 50th since the weekly system took effect at the end of March 2017. The current price of RON 95 petrol is nine 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 three sen lower than it was then (from RM2.20 per litre).
