Minister: RON95 petrol subsidy up 10 sen, pump price unchanged


Dateline 2012-03-27:

The government’s subsidy burden for RON95 petrol rose by 10 sen per litre this month due to increasing global oil prices said Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob today to the Star.

He said that the total subsidy per litre is now RM1.03. RON95’s pump price presently is RM1.90 per litre.

Ismail Sabri said the government does not want people to bear the burden.

Last December RON95 pump price was raised 5 sen.

Late last month, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak assured Malaysians that RON95’s — which is used by most motorists — present price would be sustained regardless of global oil prices.
