The ministry of domestic trade and consumer affairs (KPDNHEP) has announced the price of RON 97 for the month of October, and there’s not so cheery news for users of the fuel, because it will be priced at RM2.79 for the month. This represents a 14 sen increase from the RM2.65 per litre consumers had to pay for it from September 1-30.

The new price will come into effect from midnight tonight and remain in place until October 31, which is when the next monthly RON 97 fuel price announcement will be made.

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.
