Time to fill your tanks

Overnight, gas prices in Taiwan have hit their lowest levels in 18 years.

Cuts announced on Sunday saw diesel drop to as low as NT$ 15.2, and regular gasoline cut by NT$ 0.08 to just NT$ 18.2 per liter on the island.

Both of Taiwan’s main fuel companies announced the cuts yesterday with both company’s prices coming into effect by 1 a.m. today.

State managed CPC Corporation (CPC) and Formosa Petrochemical Corporation (FPCC) still differ slightly on rates by fuel type purchased as shown below (all prices in NT$):

Fuel Type:                    CPC .              FPCC

Diesel                            15.4/l               15.2/l

92 Unleaded .               18.2/l              18.2/l

95 Unleaded                 19.7/l               19.6/l

98 Unleaded .               21.7/l               21.7/l

The recent cut in gasoline and diesel prices across Taiwan are largely a result of an ongoing oil-related spat between two major oil producers, Russia and Saudi Arabia that looks to have been compounded by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic causing havoc across the world.
