Stiff com­pe­ti­tion among the petroleum mar­ket­ing com­pa­nies has forced the price of Petrol down to N142 and N143 per litre from the reg­u­lar N145 per litre in some part of the fed­eral cap­i­tal city.

Our re­porter ob­served that some ma­jor oil mar­keters along the North­ern Outer Ex­press­way pop­u­larly known as Kubwa ex­press road have since ad­justed their litre below N145 per litre.

The pop­u­lar NNPC fill­ing sta­tion long the ex­press­way at Katempe is now selling at N143/litre also the newly com­mis­sioned Shema Fill­ing sta­tion along the ex­press­way also sells at N143/litre.

Other sta­tions are the A.A Rano on the same road which ad­justed to 142/litre and Gegu Oil near Dutse junc­tion which re­duced to N143/litre.

Some cus­tomers ex­pressed hap­pi­ness about the de­vel­op­ment say­ing that they are al­ready ben­e­fit­ing from the com­pe­ti­tion.

Ibrahim Us­man, a taxi driver, said he al­ways visit one of the sta­tions to re­fill.

Mr Alex John said he has been en­joy­ing the re­duc­tion in price for about two weeks now and called on the sta­tions to sus­tain it for the ben­e­fits of the mo­torists.
