It’s Friday, so yay…? Perhaps, if you aren’t a green pump regular, for the price of RON 97 petrol takes yet another upwards hike.

Pricing for RON 97 petrol goes up by two sen to RM2.63 per litre (up from the RM2.61 last week), effective tomorrow, March 30. Price of RON 95 petrol continues to be pegged at the RM2.08 upper limit.

Diesel continues to be priced at RM2.18 per litre for Euro 2M fuel, while Euro 5 diesel continues to hold the 10 sen margin at RM2.28 per litre. The government says that without the price cap in place for fuels, RON 95 petrol would otherwise cost RM2.33 per litre and diesel would then cost RM2.36 per litre, should they be priced according to Automatic Price Mechanism (APM) calculations.

These prices will remain in effect until April 5, when the next set of fuel pricing adjustments will be announced. This is the 13th edition of the weekly fuel pricing format, which is announced every Friday, and takes effect from Saturday until the following Friday.
