Petrol prices remain unchanged in latest review
The Ministry of Industry and Trade and Ministry of Finance on March 27 announced the prices of petrol are kept unchanged from 15:00 on the day as compared to the latest adjustment.
Accordingly, the retail price of bio-fuel E5 RON92 is not higher than VND18,426 (US$0.8), and that of RON 95-III is set at no more than VND19,531 per litre.
Meanwhile, the ceiling prices of diesel 0.05S and kerosene were VND14,774 and VND13,825, respectively.

Without using the petrol price stabilisation fund, the fuel prices could rise from VND37 – 1,782 per litre or kilogramme.
