Fuel prices have officially gone up in Jordan.

Prime Minister Hani Al-Mulki’s government has raised the prices of fuels on Monday, which means that one litre of unleaded 90-octane gasoline now costs 81.5 Piastres, an increase by 3.5 Piastres from last month.

Unleaded 95-octane gasoline will now cost you JD 1.05 per litre; it has gone up in price by 4.5 Piastres.

The price of Diesel has now gone up from 57 to 61 Piastres, while the price of Kerosene was raised to 61 Piastres from 52 Piastres.

Luckily, gas cylinders will not increase in price this May.

This comes after economic expert and Secretary of the General Association of Petrol and Gas Distribution Stations Owners, Hashim Aqel, predicted that fuel prices would increase on the first day of May.

The Jordanian government has maintained that the fuel pricing committee uses the rate of change in oil prices for a period of 30 days before determining domestic fuel prices.
