NNPC Increase Fuel Price Between 179 and 190 Naira per Litre

Hours after the unveiling of NNPC Limited, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Limited has approved an increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) from N165 per litre to N179 per litre, effective today (Tuesday).

NNPC in a notice to fuel marketers directed them to change the petrol price on pumps to the new price effective today. This was even as the company equally increased the ex-depot price from N148.17 to N167 per litre.
