ABOUT 99 petrol-filling stations from regions and states are distributing the diesel with special price starting from 11 January, it is learnt.
The fuel oil at the fairer price is available at 99 petrol- filling stations in Yangon, Mandalay, and Nay Pyi Taw cities and Mon, Shan and Rakhine states and Sagaing, Bago, Magway and Ayeyawady and Taninthayi regions.
The name and addresses of the stations will be listed on the Ministry of Commerce’s website and those shops have to sell only at fixed prices.
Myanmar Petroleum Trade Association (MPTA), in cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce has sold fuel at a fair price since 22 September, which is equivalent to the amount that the oil importers directly purchased the foreign currency from the Central Bank of Myanmar.
If the consumers find the shops that are not being sold at the fixed price, they are urged to report to the Working Committee on Ensuring the Smooth Flow of Trade and Goods, dialling 09 664075683, 09 664596327, 09 687635943 and 09 676320816, to the Yangon Region Consumer Affairs Department – 01250270 and the Myanmar Petroleum Trade Association – 09421006794.
