Petrol sells for N220 per litre in Lagos and N235 in FCT

Despite the Petrol filling stations displaying the regulated N165 a litre on their pumps, some filling stations in Lagos, Abuja and some states sold the product above the regulated price.

The decision to continue to regulate the pump price of petrol has cost the nation about N1.27 trillion since the beginning of the year.

Recently, the price of the product increased on the insistence of oil marketers that transportation costs for the commodity had skyrocketed due to a spike in diesel prices.

“For you to load a litre of petrol, you will pay N162. You will have to add the cost of transportation, which is between N6 and N8, depending on the distance within Lagos.

“If it is outside Lagos, it is much more than that,” the Chairman of Lagos Satellite Depot of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Akin Akinrinade, had said.

“Also, some others have shut down services.”
