RON97 goes down 1 sen for coming week

PETALING JAYA: The petrol price for RON97 will go down by one sen for the coming week.

RON97 will sell at RM2.50 per litre until Sept 6.

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

The government has been subsidising fuel prices to alleviate the cost of living of the people and to stabilise prices, the ministry said.

Without the subsidy, the price of RON95 will be RM2.20 a litre and that of diesel will be RM2.23 a litre.

The government will spend RM48.84 million in subsidies to rein in the prices of fuel for this coming seven-day period.
