 BEIJING, April 6(Reuters) - China will lift retail prices for gasoline by
500 yuan per tonne and diesel by 400 yuan per tonne from Thursday, a rise of 5
to 5.5 percent, an industry executive said, the second increase this year and
lifting fuel prices to their highest levels on record.	
 China last raised fuel prices by about 4 percent on Feb 20. 	
 NOTE: Rates from Dec. 19, 2008 for gasoline and diesel are retail ceiling
prices and so differ from previous guidance that retailers can benchmark 	
retail prices against, raising or lowering them by up to 8 percent. 	
 Before Nov. 1, 2007, rates were for the southern province of Guangdong, the
country's manufacturing hub and the largest oil consumer by province. 	
 First prices are in yuan per tonne. Prices in parentheses are in U.S. cents
per litre.
