The selling price of 90-octane gasoline will be adjusted to 975 fils per liter, up from 960 fils per liter.

The committee has decided to maintain the price of kerosene for the month of October 2023 at 620 fils per liter and to keep the price of a gas cylinder at JD 7 per cylinder.
An energy expert Amer Al-Shoubaki commented on this decision. He told Roya that this price hike marks the fifth this year.
He said that fuel prices may continue to rise in the coming months, potentially surpassing previous record highs in Jordan.
