AMMAN — The government’s fuel pricing committee on Wednesday reduced the price of some fuel derivatives for September, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.اضافة اعلان

The price of one liter of unleaded 90-octane gasoline will go down by JD.005 to sell at JD0.985, while unleaded 95-octane gasoline will be reduced by JD.070 to JD1.230 in September, according to a statement by the Ministry of Energy.

But the committee hiked the price of diesel and kerosene fuel by JD0.35 for September.

The decision came during the committee’s monthly meeting, which was held Wednesday, to set the price of selling oil derivatives locally for the period of September 1–30.

In its earlier decisions, the government had fixed diesel and kerosene prices from November 2021 to the end of April 2022, and also took the same measure for 90, and 95-octane gasoline, effective February until the end of April 2022.

But the government has since started to gradually adjust fuel prices to keep pace with the fluctuations in the global markets as of the beginning of May 2022.
