fuel storePajhwok Afghan News Weekly Price Report: The price of diesel, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and gold fell, but food rates remained unchanged during the outgoing week in Kabul, retailers said on Thursday.

The rate of one litre of diesel fell from 60 afs to 59 afs, Ghulam Rassoul, in charge of the Saleem Caravan pump station in Kabul, linked the reduction to an increase in fuel imports.
