Taipei, April 29 (CNA) Domestic gasoline and diesel prices are expected to move higher next week as international crude oil prices have been rebounding amid a weaker U.S. dollar, market sources said Friday.
The recent rise in international crude oil prices points to an increase in fuel prices next week by state-run oil refiner CPC Corp. Taiwan based on its fuel price calculation formula, the sources said.
They forecast that the price of the benchmark 95 octane unleaded could breach NT$24 (US$0.74) per liter.
CPC is expected to raise domestic gasoline prices by NT$0.4-NT$0.5 per liter and diesel prices by NT$0.5-NT$0.6 per liter next week, marking the third consecutive weekly increase in fuel prices, the sources said. [FULL STORY]
