Specifically, the US WTI crude oil continued to retreat more than 2%, trading above the 100 USD/barrel mark, the global benchmark Brent oil also fell by the same level, trading at 105 USD/barrel. During the session, WTI oil had a time down as much as 8.75% and traded below the $100 mark, at $99.76/barrel, while Brent also dropped 8% to $103.68/barrel.
Talking to Dan Tri, a leader of a petroleum business said that the world crude oil price’s continuous decline in recent days could help the domestic gasoline price adjustment period on March 21 “cool down”.
According to the company’s calculations, the price of gasoline RON 95, E5 RON 92 is positive about 1,000 – 1,200 VND / liter, and oil is positive about 3,000 – 3,500 VND / liter.

The leader of the petroleum business said that there are still 6 days left to adjust the domestic gasoline price. If the market has a sudden and unexpected increase, depending on the amplitude, it will be possible to calculate how the increase – decrease, but it is still likely to be a downtrend.
However, the petrol price stabilization fund at many focal points is still negative hundreds of billion dong, so if the base price decreases, it is also an opportunity for the governing body to calculate the setting up of the stabilization fund. The corresponding reduction will be less to compensate when the stabilization fund expenditure decreases and increases “shock”.
Recently, the Government also assigned the Ministry of Industry and Trade to assume the prime responsibility for, and coordinate with ministries, agencies and localities in reviewing and clarifying the role and necessity of the Petroleum Price Stabilization Fund (BOG). Amended to improve the efficiency of management and administration according to the market mechanism.
Previously, after the Government’s resolution to reduce environmental protection tax by 50% by the end of 2022 by the end of 2022, the tax reduction is expected to take effect from April 1. Each liter of gasoline is expected to decrease by VND 2,200 (including VAT) and the price of oil is also adjusted to decrease by VND 1,100 per liter.
