For the third consecutive week in August, petrol prices will go up with a three sen increase per litre for RON95 and four sen hike for RON97.

However, the diesel price will decrease by two sen.

The price of RON95 petrol will increase to RM2.15 from RM2.12, while the price of RON97 will go up to RM2.43 from RM2.39.

Fuel Price August

The new prices will be in effect from Aug 17 until Aug 23 based on the notification from the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry’s website yesterday.

The weekly fuel pricing mechanism was enforced since March 29 this year.

Prices of petrol and diesel had been placed on a managed monthly float system since Dec 1, 2014, following the removal of fuel subsidies.
