The Jordanian government announced on Thursday that it has increased petrol and diesel fuel prices by 5 percent.

That means that 90-octane petrol now costs JD 0.86 per litre to buy, while 95-octane petrol costs JD 1.10 per litre to buy. Meanwhile, diesel and kerosene prices have gone up to 645 fils.

The price of gas cylinders has remained unchanged.

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.
