RON97 up by 14 sen, RON95 and diesel unchanged

PETALING JAYA: The petrol price for RON97 will go up by 14 sen from midnight until Sept 27.

RON97 will sell at RM2.67 per litre instead of RM2.53.

This marks the second consecutive week the price of RON97 has increased, with this week’s surge attributed to the attacks on two oil facilities in Saudi Arabia.

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 finance ministry said.

Putrajaya will spend RM123.16 million in subsidies to rein in the price of fuel for this coming seven-day period, the ministry said.
