In accordance with the “managed float” system in use by the government that is based on the average global fuel price of the month before, here’s what Malaysians will be paying at the pump come March 1st, 2015:
- RON 95: RM1.95 per litre
- RON 97: RM2.25 per litre
- Diesel: RM1.95 per litre
It’s an RM0.25 sen increase across the board from February 2015’s prices, as announced by the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry, against the previous month’s RM1.70 for RON 95 and diesel, and RM2.00 for RON 97 petrol.
As expected, petrol stations around town were jam-packed with many members of the public anticipating the news, and looking to enjoy at least one more tank at February’s prices.
