Petroleum marketer slashes price of kerosene

10 February 2015, 11:18

Kano - Auwalu Rano, a major independent petroleum marketer in Kano, has slashed price of kerosene from N140 to N110 per litre.

The Manager, A.A Rano Petroleum at Yankaba, Kano, Lawal Sabo, disclosed this in Kano on Monday.

According to him, the company has directed all its subsidiary filling stations across the country to sell the commodity at uniform rate.

He attributed the reduction in the price to the fall of oil price in the world market.

"The company decided to reduce the price to the present rate in order to conform with the prevailing trend.''

Checks revealed that the prices of kerosene had gone down across the state following the improvement of its supply in the state.

Other filling stations have also reduced their prices from N150 to between N125 and N130 per litre.

However, black marketers have also slashed their prices from N175 to N150 per litre.

Some black marketers said they reduced the price because they bought the commodity from filling stations at cheaper rates.
