Malawi increases fuel prices

132

Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) has raised pump prices for petrol, diesel, and paraffin effective Sunday in reaction to changes in the values of the Malawi kwacha exchange rate to the dollar and free on board (FOB) prices.

Following the increase made by the Mera Board at its meeting on Tuesday this week, petrol has gone up from K743.30 per litre to K788.30 per litre representing a 6.05 percent increase.

Fuel prices up!

Diesel, on the other hand, has gone up by 6.10 percent from K722 per litre to K766.90 per litre while paraffin is now selling at K609.80 from K580.40 per litre, an increase of 5.007 percent.

In arriving at the decision, Mera observed that FOB values for petrol, diesel, and paraffin went up by 18.26 percent, 19.86 percent and 16.88 percent in that order between the latest review and the previous one in May. The Malawi kwacha also traded at K715 to the dollar from K750, a 4.7 percent loss in value.

Under the automatic pricing Mechanism (APM), petroleum prices are revised upwards or downwards whenever there is a plus/minus five percent change in variables.

In a related development, electricity tariffs have been maintained at K57.72 per unit as the automatic tariff formula change was within the minus/plus five percent band.

  13. This is what we say; always in Africa we depends on how much I will gain if ican be elected as an apresident or Minister, in governments after all we just ignoring for how much people they needed when they elected us!!!

  14. Mmmmm too much now, big man he spend more time at America and it cost a lot of money compared with kwacha n dollar. Now money down,ovutika ndife amalawi osauka zithu zonse zikukwela mitengo mmmm ena akugwetsa kwacha nkhawa alibe.

  15. Idont know if he was just dreaming about the rises of fuel price because there is no old & new prices there, So, Amalawi m’zilemba nkani mwachim’vekere because sitikum’vetsetsa zimene ukunana.

  16. I don’t see any price adjustment here. Is the journalist dreaming? Hey, wake up. This Is October and not June. I am worried he has lost all these months sleeping and dreaming.

  17. In other countries such as Tanzania,price differs according to distance.That of Mbeya is expensive than that of DSM that if LL belongs TZ,we could have been in disaster

  18. well,not just happening in malawi.we were buying gasoline for around k10 per litre and now it has jumped to k13.50ngwee.looks like it is a regional,if not a global hike.
