Fuel prices have stayed still since the fourth week of March – a far cry from the fluctuating prices that defined the weeks prior. Lest you worry about a sudden upswing in price this week, fret not, as the current prices will be rolled forward for the sixth straight week.

This means that RON 95 petrol will remain at RM2.20 per litre, RON 97 at RM2.47 and RM2.18 per litre for Euro 2M diesel for the first week of May, which comes into effect tomorrow, May 3. Meanwhile, Euro 5 diesel stays 10 sen pricier than its Euro 2M equivalent and therefore will be pegged at RM2.28 per litre, also unchanged from the week prior.

As we’ve mentioned, the last time we saw a change in fuel prices was during the fourth week of March, which brought along a 10 sen increase across all fuel types and grades. Today’s fuel price announcement is the 58th since the weekly adjustment system took effect at the end of March 2017.

Overall, the price of RON 95 petrol has dropped 10 sen cheaper since the start of the weekly fuel price float, while RON 97 is now 13 sen per litre cheaper. Euro 2M diesel is also now two sen cheaper than at the programme’s start, from RM2.20 per litre.
