28 December 2015, 07:43Obidike Okafor

Lagos - As the country continues to struggle with the scarcity of fuel, Akwa Ibom has become the most expensive state to live in, with petrol pegged at N187.50k.

According to the PMS (Premium  Motor Spirit) watch released by the National Bureau of Statistics for the month of November, AkawIbom state sold the highest amount at the petrol pump at N187.50, with Ogun and Bauchi selling the lowest at N91.33.

This variation of prices from the original pump price of N87, began after scarcity of petrol began in November and has extended to December. The situation is predicted to enter into the New Year.

The prevailing situation has increased transport fares, food items, cost of services among others in every state of the nation.

The federal government on Christmas day announced that the cost of petrol will reduce from N87 to N85 from January 1.
