KUALA LUMPUR, March 27 — RON97, RON95 and diesel will see another drop in pump prices, effective midnight tonight until April 3.

According to a statement issued by the Finance Ministry this evening, RON95 will drop by 6 sen per litre, from RM1.44 per litre to RM1.38 per litre.

RON97 will also decrease by 6 sen per litre, from RM1.74 per litre to RM1.68 per litre.

The price of diesel, meanwhile, will be down 7 sen per litre, from RM1.75 per litre to RM1.68 per litre.

“The decline in the retail price of petroleum products is due to the continued decline in global crude oil prices following the global economic uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 outbreak,” the statement said.

It added that 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.
