The data shows that Nigeria currently has enough PMS stock and does not run the risk of a possible scarcity, at least for now. It also shows that the recent increase in fuel pump price was not due to possible looming scarcity, as some people had feared. Recall that last week, the Federal Government increased fuel pump price to N143.80 per litre after a review of the prevailing market fundamentals in the month of June and considering marketers’ realistic operating costs”.
