The retail price of petrol across Nigeria should be reduced by at least N1.50, the regulatory agency, PPPRA has said.

According to a memo the PPPRA sent to petrol marketers and depot owners, the retail price of petrol across Nigeria should now be between N121.50 and N123.50 per litre.

The former approved price was between N123.50 and N125 per lit, meaning both the lower and upper limits of the new petrol retail price was reduced.
