Getting a car in Singapore is a really complicated thing because of the hundred and one things to consider (mostly costs) that help you decide if you really need and can afford this car.

We analyzed the costs of getting a car in another article and now look at fuel prices in Singapore, which are known to be notoriously higher than in most other countries.

Unbeknownst to many, SINOPEC is the second Chinese firm after PetroChina to enter the fuel sector here in Singapore.

Amongst the existing fuel companies like Caltex, Esso, Shell and SPC, SINOPEC’s entrance to Singapore could point to more competitive petrol prices as they have been known to slash prices and give high discounts – although this has been refuted by many citing that petrol prices are heavily controlled and moderated here.

Fun fact: Sinopec is no stranger to Singapore. The company opened its first Lubricant Plant here back in 2013.

As we await the grand opening of its first (out of two) outlets here in Singapore, here’s how the petrol prices compare against each other.

How are petrol prices determined in Singapore?

1. Petrol tax by the Government

In Singapore, there is a fuel excise tax for motor petrol (92 and 95 Octane) and for premium motor petrol (98 Octane). The latest Budget 2018 revealed that there will not be additional carbon taxes imposed on petrol, diesel and compressed natural gas.

LTA levies a special tax on diesel vehicles. In addition, the 7% GST also applies to all fuels.

2. Handling Costs

  • Storage, transportation, marketing, operations
  • Retailer profit margin

The cost of fuel itself is but one of many components of petrol, which is why we don’t necessarily see a significant drop in petrol prices even when crude oil prices decrease.
