AMMAN — The prices of unleaded 90-octane gasoline, unleaded 95-octane gasoline, and diesel will decrease, while the price of kerosene and gas cylinders will maintain unchanged during June, based on a decision by the government’s fuel pricing committee on Wednesday.
Based on the committee's decision, the price of one litre of unleaded 90-octane gasoline will see a decrease of JD0.05 in June, selling at JD0.900, compared with JD0.950 during last month.
The price per litre of unleaded 95-octane gasoline will also drop by JD0.045 to reach JD1.140 in June, against JD1.185 in May.
