"#93 petrol 0.2 yuan cheaper!" The banner at a Sinochem-Total petro station catches the attention of many passing drivers. And another nearby station owned by the company is also launching a promotion "#93 petrol 0.1 yuan cheaper". The promotion extends to all Total petrol stations, although the discounted amount may vary.
A salesperson with Sinochem-Total says that the price of #93 petrol is 5.33 yuan per liter (approx US$3.26 per gallon). Almost all petrol stations outside the 5th Ring Road are offering discounts, but the offer from Sinochem-Total's JV stations is more appealing.
