The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission says the decrease noted in local fuel prices for October are due to favourable movements noted in the international prices for unleaded fuel and diesel and unfavourable movement in the international freight rates for unleaded fuel and diesel.
FCCC adds the major reasons for the movement in prices for all LPG products are due to the unfavourable movement of Saudi Aramco Butane CP and unfavourable movement in the international freight rate.
