HARGEISA (Somalilandsun) – The private oil importers are solely responsible for the rasped increase in fuel prices in the country.
This was stated by the Director General in the ministry of commerce and investment during an interview with HCTV in which he urged the privateers to curb things before they get out of hand.
The ministry was reacting to blames sent its way by citizens who for the last 50 days have been forced to see an increase in prices of various commodities following price hikes by fuel depots.
While price hikes are a normal occurrence at one time or another the current problem especially for motorists is the uncertainty of prices as each fuel station has its own prices ranging from $1.25 to $1.75 a liter.
