AMMAN — Following instructions from the Cabinet, the government’s fuel pricing committee on Friday decided to maintain the current price of fuel derivatives for the first 10 days of June.

The panel, during its monthly meeting to set the price of fuel derivatives for the following month, decided not to increase prices despite an increase in international prices of gasoline, diesel and kerosene, according to an Energy Ministry statement.

Under the panel’s decision, the price of fuel derivatives will stay for the first 10 days of the month at JD0.750 for 1 litre of unleaded 90-octane gasoline, JD1 per litre of unleaded 95-octane gasoline, JD0.610 for 1 litre of diesel and JD0.560 for 1 litre of kerosene.

The committee said that the price of gas cylinders will remain unchanged at JD7.

In late April, the Cabinet instructed stakeholders to keep the prices of fuel derivatives unchanged for May due to the start of Ramadan.

The Energy and Minerals Regulatory Commission on Friday also decided to maintain the “differences in fuel prices” category on monthly electricity bills for June at 10 fils per kilowatt-hour (kWh), according to a commission statement.

The “differences in fuel prices” category excludes households whose monthly consumption does not exceed 300kWh.
