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 .
TAMBA BORBOR WILL BRING YOU THE DETAILS SOON.
