Delta State Petroleum Products Monitoring Committee has advised citizens to patronise only petrol stations that sell the product at normal prices.
Chairman of the Taskforce and State Commissioner for Oil and Gas, Emman Amgbaduba, gave the charge at a news conference in Asaba. He said buying from that selling at reasonable prices would force others selling at arbitrarily high prices to bring lower their prices.
Amgbaduba said the state government was concerned about the scarcity of fuel and other issues affecting the livelihood of the people across the state.
“Since our taskforce was put in place and we have gone round the state, we discovered that petrol is becoming more available to our citizens though the queues are still there, but easing out gradually and the price per litre is also coming down, he said.
“Although, some people are still selling at N400 and above per litre, the prices are still coming down and I can inform you that we were represented this morning by a member of our Committee IPMAN, at a meeting with the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission.
