The prices will remain unchanged until 14 August due to office holidays.
The retail reference price of fuel oil for Yangon dropped to K1,795 per litre of diesel on 4 May 2023 and peaked at K3,245 per litre on 31 August 2022.
The price of Octane 92 also plunged to K1,615 per litre on 7 August 2022 and K2,615 on 31 August 2022.
The fuel oil is imported to meet local demand. They can be purchased at retail reference price, the energy consumers mentioned.
Despite the price fluctuation, energy consumers can buy them at reference prices.
High fuel prices force energy consumers to cut the consumption of generators and fuel oil in vehicles in the Yangon Region. — TWA/EM
