Effective midnight Sunday, the price of CPC gasoline products will increase by NT$0.20 per liter, while diesel will fall by NT$0.50 per liter, the company announced.

With the adjustments, retail prices at CPC gas stations will be NT$28.80 (US$0.92) per liter for 92 octane unleaded, NT$30.30 per liter for 95 octane unleaded, NT$32.30 per liter for 98 octane unleaded, and NT$26.80 per liter for super diesel.
