DOHA: There will not be any hike in petrol and diesel prices in July. The price of premium grade petrol will remain the same, while super grade petrol price will see a slight dip from July 1, 2018 onwards, according to the new price list issued by Qatar Petroleum.
Super grade petrol will be cheaper by 5 dirhams and motorists will have to pay QR2.05 per litre from tomorrow. It was QR2.10 in June.
In July, Premium grade petrol will cost the same as in June, QR2/litre.
Price of diesel will also remain the same as in June. It will be QR2.05 a litre.
There were many fake messages circulating on the social media with images showing a steep hike in the prices. This is an attempt to create confusion and panic among the residents and we urge every reader to be cautious about these fake messages.
When the first list was announced in June 2016 the premium petrol was QR1.20 per litre, super QR1.30 per litre and diesel QR1.40 per litre.
From April 2016, the Ministry of Energy and Industry had started pegging the fuel prices to the international market.
From September, it is Qatar Petroleum who is announcing the monthly price list.
