HCMC - 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 liter to VND17,806, while RON95 petrol is now priced at VND18,970 per liter, down VND76.

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