PETROL PRICE SHOOTS UP IN SIERRA LEONE

 

Monday August 15, 2005

Freetown was slapped with another increase in the price of petrol over the weekend, according to reports coming in from the Sierra Leone capital.

A usually reliable source called COCORIOKO to announce that he bought petrol at Le.10,000 a gallon this morning. The explanation from the Manager of a filling station was that when last Sierra Leone contracted the price of petrol, crude oil was below U.S. $ 60  but the price is now approximately   U.S.$65.

The prices of some basic commodities are expected to rise as the price of petrol often affects market factors. Our source said the price of a can of soft drinks went up from Le. 2, 000 to Le 3 , 000 .
