Slight fall in fuel prices in Fiji

7:45 am on 1 March 2006

Fiji's Prices and Incomes Board has announced a slight fall in fuel prices from today.

Following its two-monthly review, the Board has reduced the price of motor spirit, diesel and pre-mix outboard fuel by 1-point-7 US cents a litre.

Petrol is now 1-US dollar a litre and diesel fuel 84-US cents.

But the price of kerosene which widely used in rural cooking has gone up slightly to 72-US cents a litre.

Transport operators say the small decreases will not have any impact on their businesses and prices are likely to go up again in the next review.
