Yes, it’s Wednesday, which means time for another round of fuel price adjustments. Following the drop last week, there’s a bit of not-so-cheery news – the price of both petrol grades as well as diesel have gone back up this week.

From tomorrow, March 22, RON 95 petrol will be priced at RM2.20 per litre (up two sen from RM2.18 per litre last week), while RON 97 will go for RM2.47 per litre (up two sen from RM2.45 per litre).

As for diesel, Euro 2M will retail for RM2.18 per litre (up two sen from RM2.16 last week). As such, Euro 5 diesel, which commands a 10 sen premium over regular diesel, will be priced at RM2.28 (previously, RM2.26 per litre). These prices will be in effect until March 28, when the next set of fuel price adjustments will be announced.

This week’s fuel price announcement is the 52nd 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 cheaper (from RM2.20 per litre).
