The ministry of domestic trade and consumer affairs (KPDNHEP) has revealed the price of RON 97 petrol for the next two days, which is RM2.69 per litre. This represents a four sen increase from the RM2.65 that consumers had to pay last week.

The new price will come into effect from midnight until August 31, which is when the next weekly RON 97 fuel price announcement will be made. The shorter time frame is likely due to the implementation of the SST in September.

Meanwhile, the price for RON 95 and diesel remain unchanged as they have been since May 30 – RON 95 continues to be priced at RM2.20 per litre and Euro 2M diesel at RM2.18 per litre, while Euro 5 diesel is priced at RM2.28 per litre at the pump. These prices will remain fixed indefinitely.
