The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission says the resurgence of lockdowns in Eastern Europe and Russia due to rising COVID-19 cases, as well as soaring cases in the UK raised further concerns about near-term oil demand and weighed on oil prices.
It says fuel prices have been impacted by the movement in the international freight rate and the exchange rate.
The FCCC adds the major reasons for the movement in prices for all LPG products are due to unfavourable movement in Butane Contract Price (CP) and international freight, which were greater than the gains from slight weakening of the USD against the Fijian dollar.
