Following a joint decision issued by the ministries of Industry and Trade and Finance, the price of diesel 0.05S rose by VNĐ599 per litre, while that of kerosene went up by VNĐ520 per litre. 

This was the nineth hike in fuel prices so far this year with a total increase of nearly VNĐ5,000 per litre.

By contrast, the prices have been dropped eight times since the beginning of the year, with the decreases amounting to about VNĐ4,463 per litre. 

Current ceiling prices of RON 92 and E5 bio-fuel are VNĐ16,845 per litre and VNĐ16,533 per litre, while maximum prices of diesel and paraffin are kept at VNĐ13,023 per litre and VNĐ11,543 per litre. 

The average global price of RON 92 during the last 15 days was $59.995 a barrel, while that of diesel 0.05S was $62.338 per barrel, the ministries said. They also decided to maintain subsidies for RON 92 and E5 at VNĐ600 and on diesel and kerosene at VNĐ300 per litre. The subsidies are sourced by the fuel stabilisation fund. -
