KUALA LUMPUR: The re­tail prices of RON97 and RON95 petrol will be higher by two sen per litre, at RM2.36 and RM2.06, re­spec­tively, for the week be­gin­ning Fe­bru­ary 15 up to Feb 21.

A Fi­nance Min­istry state­ment said the price of diesel will be higher by six sen per litre, at RM2.14. “This shows an in­crease from last week’s RON95 price of RM2.04 per litre and diesel price of RM2.08 per litre,” it said.

The state­ment also said the re­tail prices for both prod­ucts were in­creased in line with the de­ci­sion of the gov­ern­ment to sta­bilise the re­tail prices for the pe­tro­leum prod­ucts and safe­guard the well-be­ing of the peo­ple’s econ­omy.

“How­ever, when the world oil prices are ris­ing and in or­der to pro­tect con­sumers from the ef­fects of sig­nif­i­cant price in­creases, re­tail prices of pe­tro­leum prod­ucts will be main­tained at not more than RM2.08 per litre for RON95 petrol and RM2.18 per litre for diesel through sub­si­dies,” it said.
