Petrol prices in Qatar for June will remain almost the same as they were this month, but will be of a new, lower octane.

According to the Ministry of Energy & Industry, 91-octane Premium gasoline will cost QR1.20/L, while 95-octane Super gasoline will cost QR1.30/L.

This month, the price for 90-octane Premium gasoline was QR1.15/L while the cost of 97-octane Super was QR1.30/L.

Diesel will remain unchanged for June at QR1.40/L.

Global market

In April, Qatar announced it would begin pegging gas prices to the global market to “raise the efficiency of energy use in the country and raise consumers’ awareness.”

This means residents may see monthly fluctuations in the rate of petrol.

However, this month, the first in which the new method took effect, petrol prices were unchanged and diesel costs actually went down.

Additionally, starting in June, Qatar Fuel (Woqod) has announced an amendment in gasoline specifications that phases out 97-octane fuel.

In a video, it explained that many vehicles don’t actually require higher-octane petrol and using it could be considered a waste of money and energy.

However, some residents have reacted to the news by saying it’s also not cost-effective to pay the same price for lower-quality fuel.
