Lower Petrol Price Ensured

AKP Phnom Penh, January 03, 2019 —

Ministry of Commerce has requested all petrol retailers across Cambodia to lower the price of the necessity.

As specified in the ministry’s announcement report, the price of gasoline should drop to 3,200 Riel (roughly US$0.8) per litre at least from Jan. 1 to 15.

For the period from Dec. 16 to 31, 2018, a litre of gasoline cost 3,350 Riel (about US$0.83).

Like in other countries, petroleum plays a crucial role in determining the price of other products and services, thus the Royal Government of Cambodia pays very close attention to its pricing.
