TABLE-China's maximum retail fuel prices by region

BEIJING, March 20 (Reuters) - China raised retail gasoline and diesel prices
by between 6 and 7 percent from Tuesday, marking the biggest increase in 33
months, a move that will help refiners reduce heavy losses but is unlikely to
hit demand in a big way.   	
    The government sets different ceiling prices for provinces 	
and cities. Retailers can set their own rates as long as they do 	
not exceed the upside limits, though retailing outlets of state 	
oil firms normally price fuels at maximum rates allowed. 	
    The following table shows the ceiling prices from provinces 	
that have unified prices province-wide and for cities in 	
provinces that have no unified charges province-wide, effective 	
Tuesday.	
    The figures are in yuan per metric tonne.
