PMS: NNPC Increases Petrol Pump Price To N179/litre


The Nigerian National Petroleum (NNPC) Limited has approved an upward review in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) from N165 per litre to N179 per litre, effective today(Tuesday).

NNPC Limited in a notice to fuel marketers directed them to change the petrol price on pumps to the new price effective today(Tuesday).

This was even as the company equally increased the ex- depot price from N148.17 to N167 per litre.

It would be recalled  that Daily Sun had exclusively reported on Monday the unofficial deregulation attempts by fuel retailers as they have adopted different price bands.

Findings by across some filling stations in Lagos revealed that majority of the filling stations have adopted different price models.

While some filling stations have changed the price on their meters to reflect the current price they are selling at, others have left theirs to show the approved retail price of N165 per litre but were selling above the displayed price.

For instance, the Mobil filling station on Agidingbi sold a litre of petrol at N170 per litre on Friday and that was evidently displayed on their meters.

The development was also the same at  Enyo filling station at Chisco bus stop,  in Lekki,  which now sells for N170 per litre ,Eterna filling station at Jankade bus stop, Lekki at N180per litre  and Mobil Filing station, by Osapa London, Lekki now selling at N170 per litre.

All the above three filling stations in Lekki have had the new prices reflected on their meters while the big board which normally

have their prices displayed for motorists to see have equally been changed.
