Specifically, the ministries allowed fuel traders to tap VND100 from the fund for each liter of E5 RON92 sold, VND200 for RON95, VND300 for kerosene and VND400 for diesel oil. The surcharge on heavy fuel oil is VND300 per kilogram sold.
This year, the prices of gasoline have been adjusted up for six consecutive times, the local media reported.
