According to Minister of Domestic Trade Cooperative and Consumerism ,Datuk Seri Hasan Malek the government will stop announcing petrol price to the public before midnight at the end of month but instead the price will only be released after midnight at the start of the month. This move is taken to prevent congestion and disruptions when motorist rushed to fill up petrol at the last minute which usually leads to out of petrol situation. The ministry will be sending the latest price directly to the petrol dealer instead. The Petrol Dealer Association of Malaysia (PDAM) has welcomed the move as they have requested the government to do so.
Malaysians will not be able to know the official petrol price but instead will only know the price at the early month. During the month of June, Malaysians are officially paying RM 2.05 per liter for Ron 95, RM 2.35 per liter for Ron 95 while RM 2.05 per liter for Diesel.
