China will raise retail prices of gasoline and diesel on Thursday, based on the recent rise in international oil prices.

Gasoline prices will increase 240 yuan (US$33.53 US) per ton, and diesel prices 230 yuan per ton, the National Development and Reform Commission said in a statement on Wednesday.

Under the current pricing mechanism, the prices of refined oil products are adjusted following changes in international crude oil prices.

China's three biggest oil companies – China National Petroleum Corporation, China Petrochemical Corporation, and China National Offshore Oil Corporation – and oil refineries have been directed to maintain oil production and facilitate transportation to ensure stable supplies, the commission said.
