Prices of petrol, diesel and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) are expected to fall marginally again at the pumps from tomorrow, May 16, 2023, for the next 14 days.

Therefore diesel, petrol and LPG are expected to sell at ¢12.30, ¢12.15 and ¢12.12 respectively.

“The Institute for Energy Security (IES) monitoring of prices over the past two weeks on the Global Standard & Poor (S&P) Platts platform indicate the prices of gasoline [petrol], gasoil [diesel], and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) decreased by 8.40%, 9.98%, and 13.43% respectively.

Gasoil, Gasoline and LPG are expected to sell at ¢12.30, ¢12.15 and ¢12.12 respectively”.
