BEIJING, Aug 30 (Reuters) - China will raise its retail ceiling price for
gasoline by 235 yuan ($38.4) per tonne and that of diesel by 225 yuan from
Saturday, the National Development and Reform Commission said on Friday.
    This represents a roughly 2.5 percent rise for gasoline and a 2.7 percent
gain for diesel. This is the fifth fuel price hike this year. 
    China started in March a new fuel pricing system that has a closer link to
the cost of crude oil. 
    The following shows a history of China's fuel price changes starting 2009.
The prices listed are retail ceilings -- companies allowed to charge lower than
that but not above.
    Gasoline prices are of benchmark 90-octane prices though most of the grades
sold in Chinese cities are of 93-octane or higher. 
    The new prices in the table are mostly national averages. Each Chinese
province has slightly varying ceiling prices.
