PETALING JAYA: The price of RON97 petrol will go up by another 4 sen at midnight, marking it the third consecutive week the price has gone up.

RON97 will sell at RM2.57 per litre instead of RM2.53 until July 19.

Last week, the price of RON97 also increased by 4 sen.

Meanwhile, the price of RON95 and diesel remain unchanged, the ministry said.

The price of RON95 remains at RM2.08 per litre and for diesel at RM2.18 per litre.

It will spend RM114.06 million in subsidies to rein in the price of fuel for this coming seven-day period.
