Federal Government increases petrol pump price to N143.80 amid Coronavirus crisis

The PPPRA, in a circular dated July 1, 2020 to marketers, said, “After a review of the

prevailing market fundamentals in the month of June and considering marketers’ realistic

operating costs, as much as practicable, we wish to advise a new PMS pump price band

of N140.80-N143.80 per litre for the month of July 2020.

“All marketers are advised to operate within the indicative prices as advised by the PPPRA.”

The agency had on May 31, 2020 announced a price band of N121.50 to N123.50 per litre for the product.

Sources at the Abuja headquarters of the agency said the rise in petrol price for July was primarily due to the increase in global crude oil prices, as PMS had been deregulated.
