Meanwhile, the Nigerian Association of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers have said they will stop importing Liquefied Petroleum Gas, popularly called cooking gas because of inflation.
According to reports, the import price has increased by 240 per cent for every 12.5 kilogram, which means the price has increased from N3,000 to N10,200 between January and October 2021.
About 65 percent of Nigeria’s cooking gas is imported, while domestic production is 35 per cent. Stopping gas transportation could increase the cost of gas used.
Bassey Essien, the Executive Secretary Nigerian Gas Importers Association, spoke on the fluctuating price of liquified gas. He said, “The NLNG supplies LPG to the terminals and these terminals sell to the marketers and at times in a day, the price can go up by about three times.”
“Take for example, I was granting an interview on Saturday morning on this same issue and that morning some terminals were selling for N11.6m to N11.7m, but as I stepped out of the interview, it had increased to N12m.”
