|Premium-grade petrol RON97 is to increase by 20 sen, or 11 percent, to RM2 per litre from Sept 1.
The price change will come into effect once the RON95 grade petrol becomes available nationwide, said Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
According to Ismail, the lower grade petrol, to be sold at RM1.75 per litre, is available at selected petrol stations from today.
However, both RON95 petrol and Euro 2M grade diesel is expected be fully available in the market by Sept 1.
Ismail’s predecessor Shahrir Samad had said that the higher grade RON95 will replace RON92 petrol.
