How Much Did Nigerian Households Pay For Petrol?? For April and May 2016

Slide2

Well it is no longer  news that the price of petrol in Nigerian has change  from N86.5k  to N145. Today we examine from the data if  government policy actually corrected some of price anomalies that characterized the petrol scarcity crisis which  rocked the country early this year.

Data clearly shows how some states have benefited from the new price adjustments (paid less compared to the previous periods during  petrol scarcity ) some examples include states like Ekiti which once paid N202.78k as at April 2016 but after government`s new price policy implementation, average purchase price of petrol by households as at May 2016 stood at N156.39k representing a 22.87% fall in price.
Anambra which once paid N193.85k as at April 2016 after government`s new policy implementation,average purchase price of petrol by households as at May 2016 stood at N147.08k representing a 24.13% fall in price.

However the same cannot be said for all states within the federation , as some states which enjoyed preferential treatment with regards to the old price and supply regulation policies ,now pay  more following the new policy by government.
For instance Lagos which once paid an average price of N92.59k as at April 2016 after government`s new policy implementation,average purchase price of petrol by households as at May 2016 stood at N144.75k  representing a 56.33% rise in price.
The Federal Capital Territory which once paid an average price of N107 as at April 2016 after government`s new policy implementation,
average purchase price of petrol by households as at May 2016 stood at N145 representing a 35.51% rise in price.

We await  June 2016 data  release by Nbs for further interpretation .
