The retail prices of gasoline have been revised down for the first time this year, according to an announcement jointly issued by the Ministries of Industry-Trade and Finance.

From 4:30 p.m. today, April 12, the bio-fuel E5 RON92 price dropped by VND45 per litre to VND17,806, while RON95 petrol is now priced at VND18,970 per litre, down VND76.

The retail prices of diesel oil and kerosene also fell VND102 per litre to VND14,141 and VND177 per litre to VND12,827, respectively, and that of heavy fuel oil dropped VND70 per kilogram to VND13,687.

Meanwhile, local fuel traders were allowed to tap the fund at VND1,800 for each litre of E5 bio-fuel sold to customers, VND950 for each litre of RON95 petrol, VND250 for each litre of diesel oil, VND300 for each litre of kerosene and VND500 for each kilogram of heavy fuel oil.
