Why cooking gas price in Nigeria fluctuates – NLPGA

The Nigeria Liquified Petroleum Gas Association (NLPGA) has provided the reason for the unsteady cost of cooking gas.
The President, Nuhu Yakubu spoke during a visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Yakubu said the fluctuations in the LPG price were caused by the local rate of the American currency.

“Once the United States dollars rise, it is only logical that it will affect the retail price”, he explained.

Yakubu said there could have been some stability in supply and pricing if successive governments copied the policy initiated by the Obasanjo administration.

The Energy and Power expert recalled that the blueprint which went into effect in 2005 led to current supply sustainability.

He said it got international oil companies and producers of gas to commit a certain volume of their production to domestic use.
