The ripple effect of purchasing a litre of fuel for N600 is that the price of transportation in Lagos #state has now tripled.
The PUNCH reports that all the filling stations owned by major oil marketers visited by our correspondents were under lock and key. Majority of the independent petroleum products marketers were also not selling petrol on Sunday.
However, the very few independent marketers with petrol were selling the product for between N150 and N400 per litre, while black market dealers were selling for between N500 and #N600 per litre in some of the stations visited.
