Nigerians should expect N165/litre petrol by January 2017 - Experts | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The retail price for petrol may rise by at least 13.7 percent to N165 per litre by January 2017 from the current price of N145 just as global price crude oil rises.

Industry experts told Business Day that the current petrol price template is predicated on an exchange rate of N285/$ and crude oil price of $45 per barrel, and these have now been overtaken by an exchange rate of N305/$ and oil price of about $55 per barrel.

Although the pricing template had been rendered void since June, following the devaluation of the naira and the up tick in gas prices, petrol marketers sold old stock, hence were able to maintain the N145 set in May.

But as soon as the marketers run out of stock and start importing new cargoes, a new pricing template must evolve and it could see Nigerians pay as high as N165 per litre in January, according to Dolapo Oni, head of energy research at Ecobank.

“As we see higher crude oil prices, let us also expect higher fuel prices. I expect an increase to at least N165 per litre in January,” Oni said in response to Business Day questions.

  4. From #85 to #145 to #165 for petrol. Dollar from #180/#175 to 480/485. Yet foolish ones still say it is well. Sorry oh. Under one and half years.

  5. This must be catastrophic! When oil prices depreciated all over the word, Nigerian were still paying #145.OO per litre. Now that there is increase the Petroleum Minister is quick to inform us (Nigerians) we should expect increase jumping up to #165 per lit. 2O17. What do we say to all these things? What's the minister's yardstick for costing this product in Nigeria? Is this on the international rise and fall of this product on international costing or? Why this unwholesome burden over the citizens of this country? Remember one day will come for everyone to give account of his or her own stewardship it's abosolutely inevitable.
