China suspends oil price adjustment

BEIJING — China's top economic planner said on June 11 that it would keep domestic gasoline and diesel prices unchanged as the international crude prices are still lower than the "floor rates."

As of June 10, the average international crude price was lower than $40 a barrel, the floor set by the Chinese government, in the past 10 working days, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.

Under the current pricing mechanism, China will adjust domestic prices of refined oil products when international crude prices translate into a change of more than 50 yuan (about $7.08) per tonne for gasoline and diesel for a period of 10 working days, but will not do so if the international prices go below the floor of $40 or above the ceiling of $130 a barrel.

China slashed prices of gasoline and diesel to a level corresponding to $40 a barrel on March 17 amid the global oil price collapse.
