China NDRC To Cut Gasoline, Diesel Prices -C1 Energy

China's National Development and Reform Commission will cut gasoline and diesel prices by CNY330 and CNY310 a metric ton, respectively, energy consultancy C1 Energy said Wednesday, citing an oil industry person familiar with the matter.

This would mean a decline of 3.3% in the average retail ceiling benchmark for gasoline of CNY9,980 a metric ton, and a drop of 3.4% in the average retail ceiling benchmark for diesel of CNY9,130 a ton, according to Dow Jones Newswires calculations.

The exact price ceilings vary by geographic location.

The NDRC last changed gasoline and diesel prices on March 20, raising them by CNY600 a ton, in response to rising international oil prices.

Under China's oil product pricing system, domestic fuel prices may be adjusted when the moving average of a basket of international crudes changes more than 4% over a period of 22 working days.

The government hasn't always rigidly followed the formula, which was introduced in 2009.

In the past, C1 Energy has generally been reliable in its reports on China's fuel price changes ahead of the NDRC's official announcement.
