Posted by under Info

It is now confirmed that the Ron 95 will be moving up 1 or 2 cents every week after the implementation of PSP (Petrol Subsidy Program) that will kick off at the start of 2020 according Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Chong Cheing Jen. The rise of Ron 95 will be gradual and will have minimal effect to cost of living. Deputy Minster also stated that the decision to slowly float the fuel price is to reduce rakyat’s cost of living and to prevent goods from rising too sharply. Chong also added that the ministry will have the price control act to avoid any businesses from taking advantage of PSP to increase prices.

As of 2020, Ron 95 prices will be freely floated according to market price. This decision will save government billions in revenue while the fuel subsidy will be channeled directly to the B40 group.
