Taipei, Sept. 20 (CNA) Domestic gasoline and diesel prices will fall by NT$0.4 (US$0.0124) per liter on Monday to reflect a decline in international crude oil prices over the past week, suppliers said Sunday.
With effect from midnight Sunday, the new prices will be NT$20.5 per liter for super diesel, NT$22.7 per liter for 92 octane unleaded gasoline, NT$24.2 per liter for 95 octane unleaded gasoline and NT$26.2 per liter for 98 octane unleaded gasoline, according to the website of CPC Corp., Taiwan (中油).
The adjustment came after the state-run Kuwait National Petroleum Co. lowered prices for its Asian customers amid growing market concerns over a slowdown in the global economy triggered mainly by the recent weak performance of China’s stock market, CPC said. [FULL STORY]
