Petrol Price Could Further Drop By N8/Litre, Marketers Clarifies

The pump price of petrol could drop further by between N5 and N8 per litre, operators in the downstream oil sector have said. According to oil marketers, the crash in crude oil price warranted the recent slashes in petrol price by the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency. They noted that the current PMS cost of N123.5/litre to N125/litre could drop further when other operators join the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to start importing products. Senior officials of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria and the Petroleum Products Retail Outlets Owners Association of Nigeria, however, noted that this would happen when every downstream petrol importer begins to access the dollar at the same rate with NNPC.

UTME 2017: JAMB Clarifies Position, Says Awaiting Results Candidates Can Apply
