Gov't raises fuel prices
Jan 31, 2013
AMMAN -- The government on Thursday raised the prices of fuel derivatives, but maintained the price of cooking gas cylinders at JD10, in accordance with the pricing committee's recommendations.
The price of ship fuel and marine diesel fuel have slightly dropped, under the committee's decision, which was endorsed by Trade Minister Hatem Halawani.
In February, motorists will pay 0.800 per one litre of unleaded 90-octane gas and 0.990 per one litre of 95-octane gas, whereas they were sold in January at 0.780 and 0.970, respectively.
Prices of both diesel and kerosene will edge up to 0.685, from 0.665 last month, in accordance with the new pricing list.
The government lifted fuel subsidies last November, with the decision leading to a 15 per cent increase in the price of 90-octane gasoline and a 33 per cent increase in prices of diesel and kerosene.
Currently, fuel prices are announced monthly by the pricing committee as they fluctuate in accordance with changes on world markets
