An increase in the price of kerosene has seen Enugu State residents paying N235 per litre as against N195 they were paying for the product.
The product was sold for N235 per litre in most filling stations in the state on Wednesday, NAN reports.
The manager at a fuel station along Amaechi Road, Jude Ogbodo, confirmed that the increase commenced two weeks ago.
He said, “Here in our fuel station, we sell kerosene according to how we bought it, so we did not increase the price because we feel like doing so.”
Similarly, a fuel station manager on Agbani Road, who pleaded anonymity, said the price had gone up when compared to what was sold two weeks ago.
He noted that the product was sold for between N190 and N200 per litre before the recent price increase.
The manager expressed optimism that availability of the product would continue in spite of the price increase.
