The common fuel grade RON 92 now sells at VND14,420 (65 US cents) a liter, up nearly 5 percent, while its greener version E5, a biofuel, at VND13,890 a liter.
Diesel price goes up 3 percent to VND9,870 a liter.
Retailers said gasoline and diesel prices from Singapore, Vietnam’s major fuel import market, increased around 15 percent the past two weeks.
