The new price after Goods and Services Tax (GST) for RON95 is RM2.05 per litre while the price for RON97 is RM2.45 per litre and the price for diesel is RM1.95 per litre.
“The price will be effective from 12.01 am, Aug 1,” Malaysian Petrol Dealers Association deputy president Datuk Zulkifli Mokti said when contacted by Bernama.
