Changes to petrol-diesel rates:
- Diesel decreased to MVR 11.19

Fuel prices were cut down most recently in May. Then prices were reduced from diesel by 14 laari (MVR 0.20) per litre and 10 laari (MVR 0.10) per litre respectively.
STO attributed the shift in fuel prices to price cuts in the world market for fuel.
