Fuel Prices Dip, Gold and Food Prices Pick Up

Retailers reported on Thursday that prices of petroleum products went down while gold and food items rose.

The increase in the supply of fuel supplies mainly coming to Kabul from the Hairatan dry port in Balkh has caused the fuel prices to dip. A litre of petrol cost 60 afs and diesel 58 afs against last week’s prices of 65afs and 62afs.

Gas prices have stayed stable at 40 afs per kg, while a gram of Arabian gold has seen an increase of 50afs and stands at 2,200 afs compared to last week’s rate of 2,150 afs.

Brazilian sugar costs 1,850 afs this week, registering 50 afs rise against its last week’s rate of 1,800 afs. The shortage of Pakistani rice has caused the item’s price to hike up by 100 afs.

However, rates of other food items remained unchanged, with a 50-kg bag of Pakistani flour selling for 980 afs, a 5-kg tin of Spin Ghar ghee for 420 afs, a kilo of African black tea for 190 afs and the same quantity of Indonesian green tea for 160 afs.

Meanwhile, the US dollar against Afghani currency has appreciated. The greenback stands at 50.80 afs compared to last week’s exchange value of 50.20 afs.
