Gov’t trims diesel cap, gasoline unchanged

The price cap for diesel decreased marginally while premium and regular petrol prices remained the same following the latest government revision yesterday.

Effective until September 21, diesel will be sold at 3,050 riel per litre, down from 3,100 riel previously.

Premium will be priced at 3,450 riel per litre and regular at 3,350 riel per litre. Updates to the fuel price caps are enacted every 10 days to reflect changes in global oil prices.
