$4.04 Per Litre

According to Fuel Kaki, a pump price tracker by the Consumers Association of Singapore, the price of a litre of 95-octane fuel ranged from $3.26 and $3.33. This is up from $3.16 to $3.25 from just two weeks ago.

More startlingly, the premium grade of 98-octane fuel at Shell was priced at $4.04 per litre. This is the first time a litre of petrol has crossed the $4 mark in Singapore. Premium grade 98-octane fuel at Sinopec was priced at $3.86 per litre.

Meanwhile, prices for 92-octane fuel ranged from $3.26 to $3.28 per litre, up from $3.13 to $3.20. Prices of diesel have also increased, now costing between $3 to $3.08. This is up from the previous range of $3 to $3.03.

Fuel prices have been on an upwards climb since the beginning of the year. This rise is driven by supply issues, the Russia-Ukraine war, and growing demands for fuel.
