WE’RE heading into the third week of weekly fuel prices, and this time there’s another increase in pricing at the pump – it’s an eight sen increase for both petrol and diesel.
As such, starting tomorrow, for the week April 12 to 19, RON 95 will be priced at RM2.24 per litre (up from this week’s price of RM2.16 per litre) and RON 97 at RM2.51 per litre (up from RM2.43). As for diesel, Euro 2M is priced at RM2.16 per litre (up from RM2.08), while Euro 5 diesel is RM2.26 per litre (up from RM2.16).
To recap, retail fuel prices remained mostly steady in March, with only diesel fuels being five sen more expensive per litre. RON 95 ended 2016 at RM1.90 per litre and climbed 20 sen in January to RM2.10. February brought another 20 sen increase to RM2.30 per litre. – Paul Tan
