The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) announced on Monday evening that China will increase gasoline and diesel prices by 600 yuan, and it will begin on Tuesday.

The new adjustments will raise the benchmark retail price of gasoline by 0.44 yuan per liter and diesel by 0.51 yuan per liter.

The latest decision to raise the prices came after international crude oil prices climbed more than 10% since Feb. 8, when the retail prices of both gas and diesel was raised by 300 yuan per tonne each.
