KUALA LUMPUR (March 15): The retail prices of RON97, RON95 petrol and diesel will remain unchanged for the week from March 16 to 22.
The Finance Ministry (MOF), in a statement today, said the price of RON97 would remain at RM3.35 per litre, RON95 (RM2.05) and diesel (RM2.15).
“To protect the consumers from global oil price increase, the government will maintain the ceiling price of RON95 at RM2.05 per litre and diesel at RM2.15 per litre, even though the market price for the two products has increased beyond the current ceiling price,” it said.
MOF added that the government will continue to monitor the trends of global crude oil prices, and take appropriate measures to ensure the continued welfare and well-being of the people. – Bernama
