AFRICAN COUNTRIES WITH THE LOWEST COST OF FUEL(TOP 5)

The price of petrol keeps soaring across Africa and the rest of the world. The factor that accounts for this is the scarcity of the commodity. The rising cost of the commodity has been attributed to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine and this war could go on for a long time.

Although there are those lamenting about the cost of fuel, there are others who pay for the commodity at an amazingly cheap cost. We will see some African countries that pay the least amount for the fuel they buy.

WHY VARIATION IN PETROL PRICES
