Petrol prices drop 5 sen, diesel 4 sen

PETALING JAYA: Fuel prices will see a slight drop across the board, the finance ministry announced.

Prices for both RON97 and RON95 will drop by five sen and will retail at RM1.93 and RM1.63 per litre, respectively.

Diesel will drop by four sen, retailing at RM1.79 per litre.

The prices are effective from midnight to August 14.

The ministry said the price drop is due to changes in refined product prices, in line with current crude oil prices.

“The government will continue to monitor the impact of global crude oil price changes and take appropriate measures to ensure the welfare and well-being of the people,” it said.
