The Ministry of Finance announced that diesel price will continue to peak at its ceiling price of RM2.18 for the sixth week, while RON95 petrol will be kept at its new ceiling price of RM2.08.





The ceiling price of RON95 petrol was previously RM2.20 per litre before a decision to lower it on February 27.
