Expert comments
Energy sector experts Amer Al-Shobaki and Hashem Aqil anticipated this increase in the prices of diesel and gasoline owing to the global surge in the costs of these commodities, Al-Mamlaka news reported. 

Aqil elaborated that robust factors influencing oil prices are still exerting substantial pressure due to the voluntary production cuts by Saudi Arabia and Russia, coupled with an uptick in Chinese demand. This has led to an increased demand and concerns about further disruptions in supply.

He mentioned that at the beginning of September, the government had raised the prices of 90 and 95 gasoline by 4 piasters and diesel by 8.5 piasters. Consequently, the price per liter of 90 gasoline became 96 piasters, 95 gasoline per liter reached 120.5 piasters, and diesel per liter rose to 80 piasters.
