Minister for Commerce and Trade, Faiyaz Koya says a further decrease in fuel and gas prices is expected in June.

While announcing a significant decrease in fuel and gas prices today, Koya says one thing we must remember with respect to Fiji, the effect actually lags – which means we are now getting the effect of something that happened a little while ago.

Koya says the price for unleaded fuel has dropped by 26 cents from $2.06 to $1.80 a litre, diesel price will drop from $1.71 to $1.67.

There is a huge reduction in kerosene prices as a litre will cost $1.08 from today. The current price is $1.47.

A 13kg cylinder will cost $40.53. The current price is $41.67.
