Except for its diesel, which it raised by three cents to $1.67 in mid-June, the Chinese-owned firm has not changed its pump prices since early May.

The 92 grade is retailing at $1.98 a litre at Caltex and Esso. It is not available at Shell and Sinopec. The 98 grade is $2.42 at Shell and Sinopec, $2.39 at Esso and $2.53 at Caltex. Diesel is $1.70 a litre at Caltex, Esso and Shell, but $1.73 at Sinopec. Meanwhile, Shell's V-Power is $2.65, while Sinopec's X Power is $2.58.

All prices are before discounts, and are posted by Fuel Kaki, a pump price tracker managed by the Consumers Association of Singapore.
