Hanoi (VNA) - The prices of oil and petrol were kept unchanged following the latest adjustment by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Finance on July 7.  

The two ministries review fuel prices every 15 days to adjust the prices in accordance with fluctuations on the world market.

The ceiling price for E5 Ron92 and Ron95-III are maintained at 19,611 VND per litre and 21,177 VND per litre, respectively. Meanwhile that for diesel oil 0.05S stands at 17,455 VND per litre, down 5 VND per litre.

The prices of kerosene and fuel oil (FO) 180CTS 3.5S are not more than 16,243 VND per litre and 14,756 VND per litre, up 189 VND and 319 VND per litre, respectively.
