Fuel Purchase from Russia to Control Prices

In an attempt to control oil prices in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Commerce and Industries signed a contract on fuel imports from Russia. The Ministry officilas said that 5,000 tons of petrol purchased from Russia would reach Kabul in a month.

10,000 tons of diesel were purchased from Russia nearly two and a half months ago. Eng. Farid Sherzai, the fuel department head at the Ministry, said that the price of a liter of diesel had been fixed at 62 Afs and the same amount of petrol at 64 afs at the 20 government-run fuel stations.

Private filling stations are requested to sell a liter of petrol and diesel for 65 Afs and 63 Afs, respectively.

The government planned to purchase more fuel from Russia, Turkmenistan and Iran to control prices in the provinces.
